The Meaning of Fellowship

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bible Verses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1Cor 1:9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into
the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Matt 22:1 And Jesus answered and spoke again in parables to
them, saying, 2 The kingdom of the heavens has become like a
king who prepared a wedding feast for his son. 3 And he sent
his slaves to call those who had been called to the wedding
feast, yet they would not come.

[Part 1 of 2]
In 1:9 Paul says that God has called us into the fellowship of
His Son. The meaning of the word fellowship is deep and
profound. The New Testament illustrates this fellowship by a
feast. In the Gospels the Lord Jesus said that a feast had
been prepared and that people were invited to it (Matt. 22:1-
3). We all have been invited to a marvelous feast. Here at the
feast we are enjoying course after course. This enjoyment of
the feast is a mutual participation, a co-participation. Thus,
in the fellowship of God's Son we have enjoyment. This
enjoyment, however, is corporate, not individualistic. As we
enjoy this feast together, we have fellowship, communion.

Some versions translate the Greek word for fellowship,
koinonia, as communion. Fellowship definitely implies
communion. To have communion is to share something in common.
When you eat breakfast alone, you do not enjoy communion. But
when you come to a feast attended by a large number of people
and enjoy the feast with them, you have communion. This
communion is a co-enjoyment, a coparticipation.

Fellowship also includes communication. Whenever we feast
together with others, there is communication. You communicate
with others, and they communicate with you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bible Verses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2Cor 13: 14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of
God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
1Joh 1:3 That which we have seen and heard we report also to
you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our
fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

[Part 2 of 2]
The fellowship into which God has called us is the fellowship
of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. This fellowship includes the
Triune God, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. It is the
fellowship of the incarnated, crucified, and resurrected
Christ, the One who in resurrection is the life-giving Spirit.
This all-inclusive One is our feast, and this feast is the
fellowship. As those who have been called into this fellowship,
we are now enjoying Christ by feasting on Him. Furthermore, we
have communion and we are in communication with one another.
This fellowship, this communion, is the church life.

The church life is the resurrection life in which we all
participate. Furthermore, this resurrection is the life-giving
Spirit, the life-giving Spirit is Christ, and Christ is the
incarnated God. Christ, an all-inclusive Person, also implies
justification, sanctification, and redemption. Christ is God,
even the Triune God, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. As
the incarnated, crucified, and resurrected One, He is both
resurrection and the life-giving Spirit. He is even our feast.
Furthermore, Christ Himself is actually the fellowship into
which God has called us. To say that we have been called into
the fellowship of Jesus Christ means that we have been called
into Him. Christ is the life, the resurrection, the
sanctification, the justification, the redemption, and
everything to us. Therefore, He Himself is the fellowship.
