The Bible Feast Blog consists of various bloggers who encounter Christ through His Word. Collectively, we will read and blog through the Bible to serve a daily Bible reading (Today’s Tasting) a simple devotional that esteems Christ and aids in growing your Christ-full life (Today’s Nourishment) and the next day’s reading address (Tomorrow’s Delight). We are blogging through the Chronological (as the events occurred) Bible in one year.
Join, as a reader, to encounter Christ and esteem Him throughout the Bible and throughout the year 2015. Anyone may join and comment. Our main objective is to esteem Christ and encourage believers to grow the Christ-full life.
John 8: Jesus said, “I am the Light of Life.”
1 John 1:7: “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
What happens when we walk in the Light of Life? Fellowship occurs.
“Fellowship with God means warfare with the world,” said Charles E. Fuller.
“A habit of devout fellowship with God is the spring and strength of all our life,” stated H. E. Manning.
What does fellowship mean to you?
The word “feeloship” derived into the English language through the Angles and Saxons by “rubbing lives together.”
In the early days of the Angles and the Saxons, they lived in a rural society. The people didn’t have money, but they owned cattle – cows, goats, and sheep. They called their cattle, “fees.” The people bartered or traded cows, goats, and sheep as their means of exchange. For their purchases, they turned in their “fee” for the goods or services exchanged. Their “fee” exchange compares to our modern day paper money exchange for services or purchases– lawyer fee, doctor fee, design fee, coaching fee, or other purchases.
Neighbors paid a shepherd to watch their fees. On occasion, two neighbors become such good friends, loving and trusting one another, the neighbors broke down fences, which they had built to separate properties. They decided, why pay someone to watch their fees separately. They pooled their “fees” together, broke down the fences that separated them, and hired one person to watch over their “fees.” This type of “rubbing lives together” became known as “feeloship.”
How are you rubbing your lives together with other believers?
We Esteem Christ when we walk in such fellowship, trusting one another and sharing our possessions and ourselves, with no fences or walls built up between us. The Bible Feast Blog promotes fellowship for our benefit.
Examples of five areas of fellowship are located in Acts 2:46-47:
- Did life together daily because of love for the Lord and one another
- Attended the temple together: worship/Word of God
- Ate in their homes together
- Praised God together as He gave them favor with people
Results were salvations occurred daily.
These are the reasons to form fellowship through the Bible Feast Blog:
- Do life together
- Worship the Lord and receive the Word of God together
- Partake of meals from His Word together
- God to give us favor online as we promote Jesus
- Salvations to occur, believers to grow the Christ-full life
How much do you want this kind of fellowship with the Christ of the Word and with other believers?
Let’s not live as bystanders, but as a present participant in Christianity for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Get into the habit of seeking Jesus first, and His kingdom. He is a present God who wants to live in our present circumstances.
