HYMN FOR TODAY:
I Need Thee Every Hour: Hymn 356
LESSON AIM: To let them know that God want them to fellowship with others.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Christian fellowship is essential to spiritual growth.
INTRODUCTION: Fellowship is a friendly association, especially with people who share one’s interests. God created man for fellowship. Genesis 3:8-9. When He created the first man, He said it is not good for the man to be alone and said “I will make a helper suitable for him”. Many aspects of our spiritual lives depend on being together with other believers to encourage, teach, serve, and share life together – Acts 2:41-42, 46-47
Why Is Fellowship So Important?
• For discipleship – Acts 2:41-42
• It helps believers to encourage one another -Prov 27:17
• It encourages good works – Heb 10:24-25
• Christian love can influence the unsaved toward faith in Jesus Christ – John 13:35
• It brings joy and freshening to the soul – Ps 133
Ingredients Of Good Fellowship:
Those who fellowship together must share the same: belief, faith, need, conviction, purpose and hope. If you are part of a fellowship where all
these are not common, then you are in the wrong place.
DISCUSSION: In what ways can we improve on our fellow-shipping together.
INVITATION/APPLICATION: It is not good for a believer to isolate himself from the gathering of the brethren, far from counsel and covering.
Come back home, be involved, grow together, do not isolate yourself.
CONCLUSION: God is pleased when He sees His children gather. There’s nothing but goodness when believers gather. The grace to utilize
fellowship of the brethren is given by the Holy Spirit.
How can I apply this to my life?
What is God saying in the text?
MY PRAYER POINT FOR THE LESSON:
Father, enlarge the coast of your church in Jesus name.
