  4. 4. **0 Togetherness! Act. 2:44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common.
  5. 5. **0
  6. 6. **0 The Power of One! Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1-9) ●This is likely the greatest account of unity you will ever find, but for the wrong reasons! ●There is a statement here made by God that we often only us of God! –Gen. 11:6 And the LORD said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. –See Mt. 19:26; Lk. 1:37 & etc.
  7. 7. **0 The Greatest Danger the Church Faces is “Itself!” ●Gal. 5:14-15 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! ●This was indeed the problem in Corinth! –1 Cor. 1:10-13; 3:1-9 –Often we fail to notice “why” this was so important for them to understand! ●1 Cor 1:9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
  8. 8. **0 I. The Basis! 1 Cor. 1:9-10 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. ●This is the “basis” of Christian fellowship! –Speak same things, joined together, same mind and same judgment!
  9. 9. **0 Both vertical & horizontal! 1 Jn 1:3-7 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
  10. 10. **0 II. The Benefits! Both physical and spiritual! ●The child of God is blessed to be able to enjoy both physical and spiritual communion with God and others! ●As we come together, we are blessed both physically and spiritually! ●I need you, you need me and we all need Jesus!
  11. 11. **0 We are in this together! ● Gal. 6:1-2 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. ● Heb 10:24-25 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
  12. 12. **0 III. The Barriers! Are there any restrictions to this fellowship? ●Now, I do not plan to spend too much time on this now, because next month we will in great detail address “the danger of fellow-shipping the world!” ●Yet, it is important that we understand one cannot be together with God and at the same time together with the world! ●These are mutually exclusive!
  13. 13. **0 With God it has always been “all or nothing!” ●Mk. 12:30 “And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.” ●God does not accept half-hearted service! ●This is important for us to keep in mind when addressing the “barriers” of togetherness/fellowship!
  14. 14. **0 In the world but not of the world! ● Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. ● 2 Cor 6:14-16(a) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial?
  15. 15. **0 Conclusion: ●We are all “better together!” ●Are we living “together” with God, are we living “together” with one another? ●Have you come to join the “Fellowship of Faith?” Have you come to trust God with your salvation? If not, then today is the day to take hold of the hand of Jesus and begin walking with Him! ●Remember to keep holding hands through life’s journey!
