PASSIONATE ABOUT FELLOWSHIP
TEXT: HEBREWS 10:21-25
MEMORY VERSE: “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (HEBREWS 10 25).
In one sense, the saint must walk alone. This refers to the spiritual journey he must embark upon. Every believer carries his own cross and travels his appointed path.
But, in another sense, the saint must travel in company. Every redeemed soul is born into a family of redeemed souls, and is a member of the body of Christ. This is the Christian community and the fellowship of saints. This fellowship or ‘koinonia’ is for the purpose of worship, communion, caring, sharing, edification and exhortation. There will be no steady spiritual growth without fellowship.
Some youths have formed the habit of skipping fellowship, both in school and in the local Church. With the advent of various technologies and the possibility of listening to messages using various electronic media, some youths have become apathetic towards fellowship. This is wrong.
We are duty-bound to play our roles towards touching the lives of other members of the fellowship. We must endeavor to be regular, punctual and active at each meeting. We must also strive to be united in soul, spirit and purpose with other members of the fellowship.
QUOTE: The saint must travel in company.
CHALLENGE: No steady spiritual growth without fellowship.
PRAYER: Help me Lord, not to forsake the fellowship of the brethren.
