Fellowship is love


Fellowship is the partnership from one believer or nonbeliever with another by socializing with similar interests. A common fellowship is when two or more are interacting in a pleasant and friendly way. All united as a family in Christ.


It’s Importance

Yes it is important to have fellowship. Especially at a congregation. Someone who has no fellowship feels extremely isolated and lonely. There must always be someone out there who comforts the new members. Do not judge what you see. Just accept and comprehend. Questioning “why this and why that”  pertaining the individual is just judgement. One who gives true fellowship gives by demonstrating pure, genuine love. It is an action. It is something one applies.


Where there is fellowship, there is no division. Where there is love, there is acceptance. A congregation that is divided through judgement is more likely to fall apart ;because where there is judgement as a priority, there is no fellowship.  But where love and acceptance comes first, there is no judgement but unity. The scripture says to love your neighbor. Therefore if one judges and doesn’t give someone a chance, then where is the love? It’s the same as back when you were in High School and you always had that loner in school; remember?

Ask yourself: Is there someone you don’t stand? Someone you don’t care for? What have you done to give your best in trying? How do you know how much is enough tries? If you haven’t, then what can you do to love your neighbor?

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks for this amazing post about fellowship! People care about each other with love and they could share everything that bothers them from their lives. My mom used to tell me when you share the same troubles in mind with more than 4 people, the problem or troubles will be gone forever since you will get the answers in the chat with others or the advice from others. So, for me, fellowship really works in the right way to help us for a better life! 🙂

    These are very interesting topics to be understood well before finding yourself in any. Recently, our fellowship had to see a fellow brother return to his country. Seeing him leave was hard to accept as it rekindled those glorious moments we shared as a fellowship. It was a joyous moment for him to leave as he was finally going to meet his family but to us, it felt like we’re losing him forever. I couldn’t shake this kind of love off considering how much I was going to miss him.

    Fellowship love really binds people together irrespective of the differences.

    Fellowship and Love are similar but not the same. Fellowship is a union where one helps each other as much as he/she can. Love is uncondinally helping others without benefit, with sacrifice even of your own life.

    Very good set of articles. Good job. Have a nice day.

    Hello Linda

    This is an excellent article. To be honest I have always been impressed by your articles. They are really very informative. I agree with you that, fellowship is  very important especially for believers. Where there is genuine love, fellowship lasts. Also fellowships are very important in strengthening our faith. Thank you very much and all the best.

    So nice and beautiful site and these words are gold in my opinion. I don’t determine “rich” as having huge amount of money or owning huge complex of real estate businesses. I think you are rich when you can share a lot; take care of weaker or lone people, help other people to face and defeat their issues in their lifes, give your hard-earned money or food or other stuff to charity. And about fellowship; In my dreamful world or more likely in paradise, I would like to have all people around caring for each other and mentoring each other to be strong and happy together. There everyone would be equal and no need for any kind of division or shortage about anything. However, I am in faith and it’s my concept of fellowship, some people determine it in different ways but they are as important and equal as me and everyone. God bless and have a nice day!

    Thank you for your articles. They are so extensive and include so much useful information.

    I agree with you that fellowship is love. It is important to have fellowship in all aspects of live. In real life, everyone is part of fellowship. Without fellowship, you are like a lost sheep, isolated and lone and there is nothing for you accomplish.

    Where there is true fellowship, there is love and acceptance. With them, we could overcome any difficulties and move our life forwards.

    It is kind of you sharing so much wisdom with us, which guide use to have fruitful life.

    These words I’ll say are divine and so educating, anytime I find myself in this site, its always a sweet experience of lesson. To my view, many people don’t actually understand what fellowship means in the real sense, some just refer to it as a gathering of people which are not limited  to; but its not only thing gathering, but a feeling to help and look out for one another as one united family of Christ ; as you’ve said in the article that one who gives true fellowship gives by demonstrating pure genuine love.  Where fellowship is, there unity lives. I’ve really a been blessed by these article. Thank you and God bless.

    This post offers words of hope and encouragement to both believers and non-believers alike. Jesus Christ in His teachings said that, “Whoever hates or doesn’t love a brother or neighbor that he sees all the time but says he loves me Jesus Christ or my Father is a big lier.” Love and care for thy brother as thyself. The moment we begin to socialize amicably with one another, the atrocities that we find ourselves in would cease. As Peter Shelley said, “Love Me Love My Dog.”

    If you love a neighbor, you won’t desire any of his belongings. If you care for your neighbor, you will not go in for his wife. It is hardly to bear false witness against a bosom friend. Neither will you shoot and kill a friend. All the aforementioned are things that we live with and have become part and parcel of our lives because the Agape love that you mentioned has faded out. We now live the “Cat and Mouse Companionship.” May the Lord have mercy on us!

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks a lot for the insightful and informative post.

    Indeed, fellowship is very important. Nowadays, once the Sunday service is over or before the pastor finishes the service, people start their vehicle and they are not ready to talk to others. Even if another believer is in hospital also they are not ready to visit or even pray for them, which really hurts.

    Acts 2:42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

    This post made me think more about the subject. I need to correct myself a lot and this post hit me on my head.

    Don’t stop meeting together with other believers, which some people have gotten into the habit of doing. – Hebrews 10:25.
