Fellowship


1Samuel 18: 1-4

“After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. 2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return home to his family. 3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. 4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt.”

David and Jonathan were close friends who shared good times and helped each other through some tough times. We need close friends in our lives; people that we can count on. 

Fellowship comes from the Greek word koinania, and in the New Testament it often means “sharing,” “close association,” or “mutual participation” and involves the ways believers help one another with their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

Christian fellowship is essential for our growth as Christians and  in our relationship with God.  Some of the most important things I have learned over the years have been with or because of other Christians.

Our relationship with God is important.  

And God expects us to carry this relationship forward into our relationships with other people.


May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
