Fellowship Among The Brethren

Tuesday 5th February 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Psalm 133

Topic:- Fellowship Among The Brethren

Text:- Acts 2:42

The Scripture records that on the day of Pentecost, about 3,000 souls came to the Lord and became members of the family of God. They continued in the teaching of the Word of God and were united in fellowship one with another. See Acts 2:42.

The practice of the early Church is what is expected of members of the family of God today. True children of God are brethren in God’s family who cannot live without fellowship with God and one with another.
Love is the basis of such fellowship. The Greek word, Koinonia, means fellowship, communion, partnership as well as sharing together.
Our Christian lives cannot be lived in isolation, but in fellowship with other brethren. True Christian fellowship strengthens the believer and the Church, while the lack of fellowship weakens both the individual believer and the Church. We need to constantly walk in the light and to have fellowship with fellow believers. See 1 John 1:7.
God gives us a lot of illustrations to describe the fellowship among believers. He uses the symbols of a family and a flock to show us what fellowship is all about.
In Psalm 133:1, He tells us that it is good, beautiful, profitable and pleasant for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is also refreshing and contributes to the joy in the believer’s life. He gives us an illustration of this kind of fellowship.
In verse 2, He likens fellowship to something ordained of God as the consecration of Aaron for the office of the high Priest. The consecration of the High Priest was climaxed by the anointing oil, the ointment that was poured upon him to consecrate or set him apart for the office and ministry of the High Priest in the land of Israel. The ointment used was a special one, divinely composed and exclusively to be used for the consecration of the High Priest. It underscores the fact that the believers’ fellowship has a divine origin. It is special, distinct, unique and universal without restriction or partiality. As the ointment went down and spread to every part of the garment even to the lowest border, so the believers’ fellowship should reach from the top to all members even to the youngest convert.

This fellowship is referred to in verse 3.
Fellowship among brethren is described from a natural perspective, like the dew which drops down to refresh all the grass and crops and causes them to grow – which in turn gives life to mankind. In verse 2, he likens the fellowship to something that brings spiritual life, because the High Priest stood between the living and the dead to make atonement for the people to receive life from God. The description of the Believer’s Fellowship is to be understood better in the New Testament sense. ‘Brethren’ means the people who belong to the family of God. It also means the children of God. See Acts 2:42-46; John 13:34, 35; Colossians 3:16; James 5:16; I Thessalonians 5:14, 15.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, give me strength and power to fellowship with my brethren henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. As I fellowship with my brethren henceforth, help me oh Lord God to be more strengthen in You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Power in fellowship like an ointment and anointing, fall mightily upon me henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Tuesday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
