Essence of Fellowship

Christian fellowship (Koinonia) is
an association, communion, fellowship,
close relationship.

“to be God’s man and God’s woman, motivated,
matured and equipped in the Spirit, doing God’s
work in His way at the place of His appointment,
together with His people”
John Morrison

“giving, receiving, and sharing of material or
immaterial things on a personal basis between
believers based on the common bond of Christ”

J. Grant Howard.

The ultimate miracle of love is this—that love is given to us to give to one another.

Give Up Your Values

Why You Should Give Up Your Values!

Focusing on behavior takes our eyes off God and
puts the focus on self. God’s purpose is that we
focus on Him. If we spend considerable effort evaluating
our behavior to see that it is good (even conforming to
10 Commandments) we become egocentric. Our eyes are
taken off God. That’s what concentrating on good and evil will do.

A Righteous Lifestyle

Does God still desire us to have a righteous
lifestyle? Most certainly. When we become
Christians, we possess the divine life of Jesus
Christ. As we abide in Christ, His life flows out
of us producing a righteous lifestyle. His empowering
grace will produce righteousness whereas our self-effort
to follow rules will always fail.

How can we say that it will always fail?

I Am Free

The Truth Will Make You Free
 31 So Jesus was saying to
those Jews who had believed
Him, “If you continue in My word,
then you are truly disciples of Mine;
32 and you will know the truth, and
the truth will make you free.” 33 They
answered Him, “We are Abraham’s
descendants and have never yet been
enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say,
‘You will become free’?”
 34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I
say to you, everyone who commits sin is the
slave of sin. 35 The slave does not remain in
the house forever; the son does remain forever.
36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.

their authority over their children to anyone.
