“God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.”
-1 Corinthians 1:9 NIV
God has called you into fellowship with Jesus. What does that mean? Some think of fellowship as a time for coffee and cookies after church. Fair enough, but biblical fellowship goes much deeper than that. It’s Christian closeness, sharing, participation, and intimacy. Do you spend intentional time with Jesus? You can. Read His Word. Jesus talks to you in the words of the Bible. Talk to Him through prayer. Prayer is simply talking to God with words or thoughts. That simple exchange, reading the Bible and praying, is fellowship with Jesus. It creates unity and participation between you and your Savior. Worship regularly and receive Jesus’ body and blood in the Lord’s Supper. It doesn’t get much more personal than that. There Jesus forgives your sins, and reminds you that He is with you always, even to the end of the age. Schedule some time today for Bible reading and prayer. You’ll reap the benefits of peace, confidence, and joy. Fellowship is a verb. Fellowship with Jesus today!
