Psalm 119:171 & Fellowship

"My Lips Shall Utter Praises To Thee..."

It's Sabbath today and I am utterly blessed by God and by all the jazz praise I am listening right now. Hobbit and I are dressed up for a 9am appointment with a friend but it was canceled right after we got to the place but that's okay (reasonable excuse given) and we drove to renew our insurance and road tax for we had no choice but do it today. It took only 10 minutes and here we are at home, listening to sermons and songs instead of going for SML for timely reason. We are enjoying home worship so far. Later this noon we are going to Dollie's room for lunch and hopefully have some good fellowship with friends. For one I learned that biblical fellowship is built on a shared calling, shared beliefs, shared hopes, shared faith, shared suffering, shared participation in the emblems of Jesus' body and blood, and a shared inheritance. Without sharing these things there is no biblical fellowship at all. Hope we are doing just that, I think we do. :) Oh, need to remind myself to bring eye creams and all my mineral make ups for a friend this evening! Hey, some points to why we fellowship...

Believers have fellowship because of shared:
• calling Hebrews 3:1;
• faith Romans 4:16;
• gospel 1 Thessalonians 2:8;
• spiritual blessings Romans 15:27;
• comfort 2 Corinthians 1:5,7;
• hope Ephesians 4:4; Romans 5:2;
• inheritance Colossians 1:12;
• suffering 2 Corinthians 1:5,7; 2 Timothy 1:8, 2:3; Philippians 3:10; 1 Peter
4:13; Revelation 1:9.
