Today’s Daily Devotional with Adrian Rogers
What is our fellowship? It is in the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What is the bond that holds us together? We have a common Lord, a common life, a common love, and that’s what makes the fellowship of the Church what it is.
I used to play football. When we would win a big game, the people up in the stands—your dad and mom, and friends—would hug and say, “We won, we won!” and the coaches down there would embrace and say, “We won, we won.”
And while they took joy in the win, they didn’t actually play the game. I’ve been so tired I couldn’t even lift my hands to pull my jersey off. It’d be wet and sweaty, and my arms would be bruised, but I’d finally get that jersey over my head, unlace those shoes, and rip that tape off my ankles. As I’d sit there with another guy who’s bruised and battered, who’s been down there in the trenches with me, I would look over at him and say, “Bill, we won, didn’t we?” That’s fellowship: when you’ve been in the trenches together.
- What would it look like to be in the trenches of faith together with others in the Church?
- In what ways do you seek fellowship with believers around you? What is difficult for you about living in fellowship with others?
Share a meal with some fellow believers and encourage them about the moments you have been supported by the fellowship you have in Christ.
