Real fellowship

Fellowship is a place of grace, where mistakes aren’t rubbed in but rubbed out. Fellowship happens when mercy wins over justice.

Not going to a sports game

  |  0 Comments

A pastor wrote, Football in the fall. Basketball in the winter. Baseball in the spring and summer. This pastor has been an avid sports fan all his life. But I’ve had it! I quit this sports business once and for all. You can’t get me near one of those places again. Want to know why…

Every time I went, they asked me for money.

The people with whom I had to sit didn’t seem very friendly.

The seats were too hard and not at all comfortable.

I went to many games, but the coach never came to call on me.

The referee made a decision with which I could not agree.

I suspected that I was sitting with some hypocrites — they came

to see their friends and what others were wearing rather than to see the game.

Some games went into overtime, and I was late getting home.

The band played some numbers that I had never heard before.

It seems that the games are scheduled when I want to do other things.

I was taken to too many games by my parents when I was growing up.

I don’t want to take my children to any games, because I want

them to choose for themselves what sport they like best.

In the mind of Jesus

  |  0 Comments

In the mind of Jesus acts of service were not inconsistent with greatness but rather an integral part of it.
Jesus’ concept of greatness-and obviously is the correct one-is so contrary to the wolldis sense of values that even we Christians Cave difficulty grasping it. Even the disciples vied among themselves for rank and position rather than for the privilege of serving one another.
By serving, I simply mean doing Helpful deeds for one another.
Paula shipwrecked on the island of Malta, gathered a pile of brushwood to put on the fire bails for his fellow passengers -these acts was incredibly simple and mundane in and of itself. But this is what servanthood within the fellowship of believers is all about: being alert to the little things that need to be done and then doing them.

Jesus knew that it was

  |  0 Comments

Jesus knew that it was the night of his betrayal and that the very next morning he would suffer on a cross for the sins of the world. He wouid from out viewpoint, have had every reason to be preoccupied with his imminent sufferings. Yet Jesus took time to tend to a duty -washing the feet of guests – that was usually left to the lowest servant in a household. He did this with full awareness of his own divine dignity.

It was not in spite of his greatness but because His greatness that Jesus served his disciples on that evening. His own attitude toward servanthood, that true greatness in the Kingdom of God consists not in position or authority but in serving one another. If we are to master the scriptures principles of true biblical fellowship we must master this one: True greatness in the Kingdom of Heaven consists in serving one another. Jesus said ‘Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servants’ Matthew 20:26

Nothing tends more to cement

Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying together. Never do they love one another so well as when they witness the outpouring of each other’s hearts in prayer.
