7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
Quite frequently, when we discuss the topic of Fellowship we focus on getting together for an event, and often to have fun. Of course, we know that Fellowship is much more than that. It evolves from a common identity for believers manufactured by our savior. As is evident from the passage above, Fellowship has less to do with “delight” than “the Light”. Further, it is more about an ongoing journey (“if we walk”) than occasions – a journey that often involves common suffering instead of fun.
Please prayerfully reflect on the Bible verses above.
Something to think about:
Is the concept of walking together with other believers (i.e., doing life’s journey together) a sufficient feature of your life?
