1 Corinthians. 1:9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
“The fellowship of his son” denotes a certain, important characteristic about life in Christ. Especially following Jesus’ death, the resurrected Christ is none other than fellowship. Christ among us is Christ IN THE PEOPLE OF GOD. For 125 years, worshipping in weekly services totaling (at least) six thousand five hundred times, the people of God have bound themselves to each other and to God in worship. Then, that worship has made (at least) two provisions: for fellowship and for equipment for service. Coming together has strengthened connections and capacity for service.
Questions for reflection:
What is one experience you have had in worship that has led to your feeling a greater connection with people around you? How might your involvement in worship further connections between people and people…and between people and God?
