Today’s Scripture Selection: Second Corinthians 13:14
Mention the word “fellowship” to me – and my mind almost immediately goes to my little church’s “First Sunday Fellowship” breakfast gathering – or one of the hundreds (if not thousands) of fellowship meals I have attended as a pastor over the years.
Those are nice events – albeit a little hard on the waistline. I wonder, how many green bean casseroles I have eaten over the course of thirty-some years of ministerial service?
But fellowship can be something profound and deep.
Just consider this benediction from one of the Apostle Paul’s letters to the Corinthian church:
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
There it is.
God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is at work – providing amazing grace, unfathomable love, and deep, abiding fellowship.
That’s a whole lot more than a chance to get together, swap news, and eat green bean casserole.
Find ways to fellowship with God this week.
- And just simply being still and knowing God is God.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, blessed Trinity – thank you for so many opportunities to be in fellowship with you and others – and all that it can mean. AMEN.
