B.A.S.I.C Series -Part 4

Joke: Many of you heard about Diane falling and hitting her face on the pavement (and she also broke her foot in a couple of places). Well, in honor of her, that reminded me of a joke (I think you ladies will appreciate this one):

Three guys were camping and, like guys do when they get together, they started bragging.....

First guy said, I married a girl from Kansas

Second guy. Well I married a girl from Oklahoma

Third guy said, “I married a girl from Texas...

OPEN: Well, we’ve been talking about the BASICS.

Talked about:

 Bible study

 Quiet Time, and

 Witnessing

 Today there are many “basic”

things I could talk about: o Prayer



oTithing (Giving to the Lord financially)

o Serving oWorship, etc.

But what I felt most compelled to

talk about for this final message in

this series is: FELLOWSHIP

(TELL STORY OF WHEN WE FIRST STARTED RESTORATION FELLOWSHIP CHURCH)

Fellowship IS a BIG Deal. And the

reason why it’s a big deal is because

it’s a big deal to God.

But what is fellowship? Well, in churches we have....

 Fellowship halls

 Fellowship lunches, even

 “’hand-shaking’ fellowship”

during our services.

But does that mean that we are truly “fellowshipping”? Probably not.

The dictionary defines fellowship this way:

Noun

fel·low·ship

/ˈfelōˌSHip/

1. a group of people meeting

together to pursue a shared

interest or aim

The Bible uses another word. The Bible uses the word:

Koinonia (Greek)

It means:

 fellowship

 community

 participation

 intimacy

 it literally means “to share

everything in your life” (everything that is permissible by God)

SET-Up Video:

TEXT:

Acts 2:42 says All the believers

devoted themselves to the apostles’

teaching, and to fellowship, and to

sharing in meals (including the

Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.
