I John 1:3 ” We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ.”

The Greek word for fellowship is Koinonia.  Now when we talk about fellowship or fellow-shipping together, our idea of it may be different from the true meaning.  For many of us think of fellow-shipping  together as  fun social gatherings…where we mix and mingle, often with lots and lots of Potluck dishes, but little mention of God.  But this word Koinonia has a much deeper and spiritual  meaning.  When as a Believer we learn to commune or share intimately with  God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ…it’s called Koinonia.   And when  the Body of Believers come together, it’s Koinonia when we share our love, faith, and encouragement with each other.   For when we are truly  fellow-shipping one with another, we are sharing what we have in common…our love and joy for the Lord.
