The Father and the Son

Traditionally, when Church members have assembled to enjoy eating together, that event has been called a “fellowship meal.” While fellowship does describe the sharing of something in common, the saints sharing a meal together is actually inspired by the fact that they all share in common something infinitely more important. At the Second of Acts, the earliest Christians are described as continuing steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship. In the text, doctrine and fellowship are joined by a conjunction, rather than separated by a comma. The fellowship exists because of a common faith in and obedience of the Gospel. John said he declared what he and the other apostles had seen and heard so that their hearers might have fellowship with them and with the Father and the Son.
