Well, I know I should have written more during my vacation. So sorry about not doing that. I just feel like time has some how just vanished. It feels like I have been doing everything and nothing. I have been out with great friends and family, BBQing with the same people and as of lately BBQing with our church. It has been a very hot summer. At least for us here in Sweden. We are not use to the heat and our homes are not built for it. But I am not complaining, soon winter will come and this will be just a memory.
So if I could sum up this summer so far, it would be fellowshipping to the max! Yes when you are together and sharing something, like a meal or bread with a beverage you are fellowshipping. As a christian you fellowship more than you think. So what could it be? Well in order to fellowship we need a common ground, something that brings us together like our belief (Acts 2:42) “42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
Work (Nehemiah 4:6), “6 So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart.
Faith (Daniel 3:17-18), “17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.“
Need (2Corinthians 8:13 – 15) “13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, 15 as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”[b]
and struggles (Daniel 3:28-29), “28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.”
Other areas that are necessary for fellowship include a common purpose (Psalms 133:1), “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!“
Conviction (1Peter 3:8), “8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.“
Hope (Ephesians 4:4).,”4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;“
So as you can see for your self, fellowship is more than just eating a meal or sharing something from scripture. I think that fellowship is everything that we do together in God the father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Gods blessings upon all y´all!
