The first-century Christians viewed fellowship with one another as crucial. They realized their need for mutual contact and encouragement. The Scriptures reveal their deep commitment to the Lord and to each other since fellowship with one another results from friendship with God. Fellowship rests on the foundation of love and involves sharing our joys, sorrows, hopes, fears, setbacks and victories. Such practice operates on level ground and leaves no room for arrogance or superiority. Fellowship never goes out of style. “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42).
