FELLOWSHIP




            Text: 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
            Fellowship= communicate, Communion, partnership, participation.

            Going to church is fellowship.
            Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
            Get involved
            Be faithful
            Pray for each other
            Minister to each other
           
Godly people Godly people
            Psalm 1:1-6 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the
            counsel of the ungodly,  ( The righteous doesn't listen to the things the ungodly has to say). Nor
             standeth in the way of sinners, socializes with unbelievers)nor
             sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (Negative attitude).
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.



Results of Christian Fellowship

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

            Godly people are characterized by;
            Righteousness
            Love
            Obedience to God's word
            Separation from fellowship with the world
            The godly person is known by and blessed by God
           

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. (unstable).
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. (Being around Christians won't bring Christian fruit).
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Ungodly people
             Represent the ways and counsel of the world
            Who do not abide in God's word.
             Have no part in the assembly of God's people.

Be separate from sinners
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Abstain from being unequally yoked together with;
            Marriage partners.
            Business interests.
            Partnerships that are not with Christians.
