Philippians 1:1-11

Experiencing Joyous Christian Fellowship (Philippians 1:1-11)

Fellowship: What is fellowship or what constitutes fellowship? The word fellowship seems to mean many things to many different people.

Often, we think of fellowship as being present at a meeting, or getting together for a cup of coffee of tea or even enjoying a game of golf with a friend. But does this constitute Christian fellowship?

In some ways, it does; but in other ways, it doesn’t. Let me explain! Christian fellowship is really much deeper than sharing coffee or having a game of golf. After all, Christian fellowship involves more than the physical. It must involve the spiritual.

In that sense, our Christian fellowship is sourced in our relationship with Jesus Christ and our ability to draw attention to it. In this ways, we express our spirituality in our joyous Christian fellowship.

Paul showed how this is possible in the first chapter of Philippians. In this passage, Paul uses three expressions that lead to joyful Christian fellowship.

They are...

  • I have you in my thoughts (1:3-4)
  • I have you in my heart (1:7-8)
  • I have you in my prayers (1:9-11)

The results of joyous Christian fellowship are that the church grows, the gospel is shared and people come to faith in Jesus Christ.
