Developing Fellowship With God

Cup of wine and bread on table close-up“Fellowship is a relationship of inner unity among believers that expresses itself in outer co-participation with Christ and one another in accomplishing God’s will on earth.”

The one anothers of the Bible are the values, attitudes, and behaviors of Christian fellowship.

Christian fellowship only exists between those in fellowship with the Trinity. 1 John 5:7

• Fellowship with God the Father – 1 John 1:3
• Fellowship with God the Son – 1 Corinthians 1:9
• Fellowship with God the Spirit – 2 Corinthians 13:14

Essentials for Developing Fellowship with God Alejandro’s Story

• Receive the gift of salvation. Galatians 4:4-6
o Provided from the Father (Planned by the Father)
o Provided through the Son (Executed by the Son)
o Provided by the Spirit (Applied by the Spirit)

• Transform your desiring, thinking, doing, and being.
o Desiring 1 Peter 1:14
o Thinking Romans 12:2
o Doing 1 John 1:7
o Being 2 Corinthians 5:17

• Live with Trinity mindfulness. Isaiah 26:3, Psalm 1:2
o Mindfulness versus mindlessness.
o Mindful of God’s presence.
o Mindful of God’s commands, instructions, and wishes.

• Develop a deeper understanding of holy communion and approach the Lord’s Table regularly.
o In 1 Corinthians 10:16 the Apostle Paul teaches about holy communion.
o The Greek word for this concept, in this verse, means participation, communion, and fellowship.
o In holy communion we have participation, communion, and fellowship with the Father (who planned salvation), the Son (who Executed salvation), and the Spirit (who applies) salvation.
