Some Call it a Scam; We Declare it the Grace.

Some call it a scam; we declare it the Grace.

“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many” (1Cor. 12:12-14)

Last time, I suggested a fellowship of prayer to enrich the koinonia of believers, and you might have thought, “Well…Isn’t prayer too simple an answer?” Yes, fellowship of prayer is a very basic thing that we already know, but one thing that we still lack to apply in our lives. Fellowship should be simple, not complicated, and if it were, it would be politics. However, don’t underestimate the value of the fellowship of believers, for it is not just a gathering of individuals for socializing. Our fellowship has special foundation, which is His self-giving and self-sacrificing love and power of resurrection and reconciliation. As you heard before, everything has price. God’s fellowship with us also has price. But, it was so precious and expansive for us that we could not afford it. To give himself to us, he named the price, Jesus. as such, fellowship with God is the most contradicting statement, for God gave us the most extravagant gift for free. Some call it a scam; we declare it the Grace. Whether in the context of a fellowship with two believers or in a small or large group, we should celebrate our fellowship with other believers, for we have been reconciled with God and other members of the kingdom of God.
