The vital nature of fellowship.

Posted by appolus on October 18, 2022

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, with anyone named a brother who is  sexually immoral or, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; not even to eat with such a person.

 Fellowship, is one of the most vital aspects of our faith. First and foremost is our fellowship with the Lord. Unless we are vitally connected to Him then we have no power. He alone is the reason that we stand. He alone is the reason that we have been transformed. It is His love and His grace and His mercy that we totally rely upon to live. We cannot let anything or anyone come between us and the Lord. If something or someone is hindering our walk with the Lord we must choose. Who shall you choose to offend? Will you offend the Lord so that you may not offend a friend? These are the kinds of choices that shape us. Who shall we be in Christ? This phrase “named a brother,” is interesting. Paul could have just wrote brother, but he did not. The inference is obvious. Just because you call yourself a brother, or a sister, in no way means that you are. We shall know them by their fruit the Word tells us.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2Co 6:14) People who profess to be Christians but who live in any of the sins mentioned above are not to be fellowshipped with. This is the plain reading of the Scripture. This is the great flaw in most of what we call “churches,” today. It is vital oh saint that you gather together with other people who have a like minded passion for Jesus and His Word. Only you can discern what this means to you. What does the Word say? What is the Holy Spirit saying to you? The communion of the saints is such a vital part of who we are as Christians, but it must be with other saints living a Biblical life, it cannot be with false professors. How can I know this Frank? You must discern it by the Word and by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Remember saints, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A man or  woman will talk about their passions. The Spirit in you will witness with the Spirit in others. Only by this kind of fellowship comes growth. You cannot grow in any other way other than that which is prescribed by the Word of God.
