More Fellowshipping With God


"Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Eph. 5:19)

Jane and I spent a wonderful day together yesterday. We did our usual morning things and then went out for lunch. We preceded to drive to High Point State Park, (it snowed in North Jersey) to the northernmost part of the state. We stood at the top of the mountain that is a glorious 1,803 feet in elevation, the highest point in our state. We then drove south to Trenton for a Gospel Meeting at 7:30 PM..Why the chronology of our day? Fellowship is a wonderful thing. Jane thoroughly enjoyed one another's company during the day, and the company of other Christians in the evening, as we all fellow shipped with God.

The song leader last night was in a word, dynamic. He did not sing all the words or notes as they were written in the song book, but he did get us into the spirit of singing....It was certainly a fellowship with God. We communed with our savior through, "Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs." It was an uplifting experience. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (Phil. 4:6). Another fabulous way to fellowship with God is through prayer. Before the speaker presented his message last night, several prayers were offered to God on our behalf. There was such a feeling of warmth as we spoke to God. The next verse in the Book of Philippians says; "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." To me, that is our God doing His part in this fellowship moment, giving us peace and guarding our hearts and minds.

Lastly, we come to another important way that we find an avenue for fellowship with our Lord. In Matthew 25 Jesus said, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me" (Vs 35 & 36). You know where I'm going with this, don't you! When asked when they saw Him in these conditions and met His needs, He replied, "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me" (V 40). In our service to others we have a wonderful fellowship with God. What a warm feeling ought to flood our hearts as we visit a sick person in the hospital or send a note of encouragement to a friend who needs to be lifted up. To feel that as we are serving, we give a thirsty Jesus a drink, should thrill our souls. We are indeed fellow shipping with the Lord in our service to others. One or two more thoughts next time...

Have a wonderful day...We would really be a good day for a RAK.... Love mark Phil. 4:11
