Getting to Know and Love One Another as Fellow Believers
The Priority of Fellowship:
Mankind was created for human community (Gen. 2:18)
The corporate aspect is found in both Old Testament life and in the New Testament Church (Gen. 12:2; Eph. 2:19-22)
The early church was devoted to fellowship (Acts 2:42)
Jesus’ prayer for oneness patterned after the Trinity (John 17:20-23)
We are commanded not to forsake relationship with one another which requires that time be spent with one another (Heb. 10:25)
Corporate fellowship is the dimension in the life to come (Rev. 21:2-22:5; Heb. 11:10, 13-14; 1 Thess. 4:16-18; Phil. 3:20)
