How to Have Incredible Fellowship in Your Church, part 1
I know a man who was on staff at a large church in the south. He fell immorally. Although he repented and desired to change, his church leadership booted him out. And his whole family. They weren’t welcome anymore.
What are the fellowship times like at your church? What are the fellowship times like for you with other individuals? Do you ever wish the fellowship got deeper? Do you ever wish you could allow just a few people to find out who the real you is–knowing they would still love you?
I think there are so many things about real fellowship that we miss. The kind of fellowship the Bible talks about.
It turns surface relationships into tight bonds. Acquaintances into brothers/sisters who would give their lives for one another.
This kind of fellowship upholds the people of God. It’s more than accountability. It’s living life together.
This same man who fell immorally told me he wished he had authentic fellowship years ago. He believes that kind of fellowship would have saved him from the heartache he brought upon himself, his family, and his church.
I know a lady who has been in her church for a several years. Difficult things are happening in her life that she can’t bear alone. But she feels alone.
Perhaps you feel this way at your church? Authentic fellowship is incredible. But it’s not easy to accomplish.
Wanna see how it’s done?
Over the next several days, I want to take a good look at what Scripture calls fellowship. And I invite you to compare what Jesus says fellowship is with what you currently experience in your life–at your church. Compare the two so you can see what needs to be done to enjoy this beautiful gift from God.
How to Have Incredible Fellowship in Your Church is a series through the book of 1 John. This book is about fellowship.
You’ll begin to see how much we miss in our typical fellowship times. And you’ll want what you see in 1 John!
I’ll show you what I mean. Tomorrow! 🙂
Here’s my book on fellowship specifically for guys. Check it out.
