Food and Fellowship
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
The Importance of Acts 2 Hospitality
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another….” (Hebrews 10:24–25)
Christian fellowship is more than a meeting of friends and family. Fellowship is also the sharing between one another that takes place when we get together. If you have ever attended a church fellowship you know there is good food involved. It could be a full meal, a covered dish carry in, or even an ice cream or cookie social. Whatever is on the menu, there is still more to the meeting and the food when it comes to Christian Fellowship.
Stir up to Good Works and Love
As we read in the Holy Bible in Hebrews 10:24-25 we are reminded of the central purpose of our gathering in fellowship. We are called to 'stir up one another to love and good works'. Our friendships with other believers plays a key role in the life of the Christian Church. Unity in The Holy Spirit in the bond of peace is our common thread. Together we share in a unified faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Christian fellowship is something that God calls us to in His Holy Word. We know that faith, food, friendships and a strong devotion to Jesus Christ and His teachings bonded people in Christian love. Together they studied the Apostles teachings and how to live according to The Way of Jesus Christ as found in the Holy Bible. Fellowship, which is more than food, is still one of the key elements of unity by the Holy Spirit in the bond of Peace for the Christian Church.
