Many struggle to grasp this reality for the simple fact that they still do not understand the meaning of fellowship as the word is used in Scripture. Fellowship is simply “ seeking to share with others what God has made known to you, while letting them share with you what they know of him, as a means of finding strength, refreshment and instruction for one’s own soul.” It is therefore “through fellowship and in fellowship one’s own soul is refreshed and fed by the effort to communicate one’s knowledge of divine things, to come and pray for others, and to receive from God through them.”
