What we have seen and heard we also declare to you, so that you may have fellowship along with us: and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3 HCSB
Most churches have a large room called “Fellowship Hall” that is large enough for people to gather for a meal together or enjoy a program. Fellowship is important to building relationships. On Tuesday nights I enjoy playing golf with a group of men from our church. We play a two-man scramble and play for points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points wins the Little Flock cup. The main purpose of the Tuesday night golf league is fellowship. We all enjoy the time with one another as we experience friendly competition.
As believers we should desire to have “fellowship” with other believers. As we spend time with fellow believers, it helps us to become more like Jesus Christ. In this verse, John is proclaiming that people can have fellowship with God the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ if they understand and accept Jesus as personal Savior.
Challenge: Accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and you can enjoy fellowship with God. Get involved in a small group Bible Study where you can enjoy fellowshipping with other believers and growing in your relationship with Christ.
