In a culture full of alienation and disenchantment, how do churches offer distinctly Christian fellowship? To enjoy the community of believers, we must first have more than an interest or desire in common; we must share Christ’s salvation and grace in our lives. From Romans 12, Alistair Begg teaches on the practical characteristics of believers’ life together. When Christian relationships are full of sincerity, humility, fervency, reality, and hospitality, the divine gift of fellowship is at work.
9Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,7 serve the Lord. 12Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
