1 Cor 1:9-10: “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”
What does, “God is faithful,” mean? Has He ever turned His back on you (even if/when you turned your back on Him)? He called you to join His Son in fellowship. How do your lifestyle and behavior demonstrate this? Are you in fellowship with something or someone other than the Lord Jesus Christ? How can you be sure? Why is it so difficult to find a group of believers who are willing to speak the same things in Christ’s name? What are some of the divisions you have noticed in your congregation or circle of friends? What causes these conflicts? Do the believers in your group promote unity or division? How many divisive issues does it take to break fellowship? When was the last time the church was perfectly joined together in mind and judgment?
