I spoke about fellowship with God in yesterday’s post, and said that it was the fellowship we should be seeking above all others – certainly above any Christian fellowship (for all the reasons that I stated). Yet there is a fellowship among human beings which God does bless and I want to say a word about that.
Human fellowship (that is, human interaction) is good, and it, too, is preferable to Christian fellowship. The reason? Human fellowship speaks of how we as humans are all equal in the sight of God. Christian fellowship, as I said yesterday, factionalizes the human race. It implies that some people belong to Christ and others do not. In actuality, all people belong to Christ. That’s why we should be seeking human, not Christian, fellowship.
Some will say that Christian fellowship gives the opportunity to acknowledge and praise Jesus Christ. There’s no reason all human fellowship couldn’t include acknowledgment and praise of Jesus Christ. He is certainly worthy of that. If some people don’t like hearing the name of Jesus, shouldn’t we bear up under their persecution and love them anyway?
