Sweet Fellowship of Joy

           Have you had your Joy Juice today?  The joy of the Lord is always available when we are in fellowship with Him. 

            1 Corinthians 1:9 says: “God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.”  Let’s think about that word “fellowship”….We were created for fellowship with God and called into fellowship with Jesus.

            In church circles, the word “fellowship” has become synonymous with a gathering where food is served.  At my church we have breakfast fellowships before Sunday School, lunch fellowships many Sundays after worship service and various “fellowships” where the church family spreads food together.  And there is certainly nothing wrong with that!  It’s great way to bond with church family.   

            But we learn from studying God’s Word that “fellowship” is much more than an eating meeting!  It is a heart issue! We should desire to share in one another’s troubles, as well as celebrations. We should laugh together, cry together, work together, play together, and pray together. Because of our connected hearts, bonded together by the love of Christ, we should truly live in fellowship with one another.

            Even more importantly we must remember that fellowship with God should be at the top of our priority list!  One thing is for certain: genuine fellowship with Jesus brings an indescribable joy that can never be equaled.
            Invite God to join you in your walk through this day….and drink in the sweet fellowship of joy with Jesus!
