Fellowship is often times overlooked in the life of a Christian. If you grew up in the church, you might associate the word “fellowship” as something your church family did by bringing a pot-luck style of lunch for all to share after a special Sunday service. But fellowship is not an event, no, it should be part of our life as a Christ-follower. Maybe the strongest and most pointed passage about fellowship is from Hebrews 10 when the author says that some have stopped meeting and are neglecting fellowship. This is important for all men and women of faith. As you read through these passages, consider your own life and attitudes towards fellowship. Do you desire to be around other Christians?
