True Fellowship

     There is very little true fellowship that goes on today as God defines it.

1 John 1:7-
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

     If there are 2 people who have a relationship, both claiming to be believers, and 1 of them is living life as they please, and the other one is living life according to God, by the Spirit, they won't experience true fellowship. There will never be any depth or closeness felt between them. Why? The Scripture tells us. It is one's relationship to Christ, and how they live that out, where 2 souls connect.
     This fellowship can give and receive Christ one to another. He, and following His ways, is the answer. There will always be a distance, if not a complete "disconnect" with those who are in the light and those who are not.
     In Western "Christianity" today, so many have fallen prey to the prosperity, cheap grace gospel which makes it hard to find true fellowship in it's true context.  Is this what is meant by the apostasy, or the "great falling away" the Word tells us will happen? Maybe it's not as we thought, when men will deny God with their words, but with their actions.
      A few couples we've come in contact with state the same. They have said, "It is very hard to find other people who want to share Christ and the things of Christ in conversation. Most are talking about their favorite football team, clothing stores, movies, or massage places, or anything, but the Kingdom of God." It is such a joy when a true believer finds another one to fellowship with today.

"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." Matt. 18:20. It is His presence shared between each other that makes all the difference. Sweet, sweet communion.
