This week we are looking at five means of spiritual growth. The fourth of the five words is Fellowship. How do you define it? Well, you know, I heard someone say, “two or more fellows in the same ship.”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. You know, when I first heard it, I thought it a bit corny. But…it does get to the heart of the matter of spiritual fellowship. Here, I think, is the main point. Through calm seas or crashing waves…through soothing sunshine or raging rainstorms, these people are in the same ship together. They need each other…depend on each other…encourage each other …challenge…support each other. Christian fellowship is all of these plus praying for one another, caring for one another and developing friendships with one another. Perhaps this is behind the promise of the Gospel that where two or three believers are gathered together, Jesus is in their midst.
