Fellowship of the Spirit

Apostle Paul rejoiced at the good works of the disciples in the church at Philippi and for their generosity toward him while in prison. Even from afar, he ministered to them through his letters, despite the pain of not being free to join with them physically.

However, in the fellowship of the gospel, he is able to join with them spiritually, for he was content to see that their salvation was true by their good deeds, and this reality brought him much consolation.

The fellowship of the gospel is all about love. As we share in this fellowship, we are living out our faith. To that end, as Paul demonstrated, there is no length he would not go to bring mankind unto a saving relationship with the Father.

As challenging as it may be,Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” ~ Luke 9:23.

To share in the fellowship of the gospel is to love God and neighbor no matter what. Paul’s experience reminds us that even if you suffer for doing good, God will give you the strength to continue loving.
