Luke 18:28-30

“Then Peter said, ‘See, we have left all and followed You.’ So He said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.’”

In my travels, I am always amazed at the koinonia of the Spirit experienced by believers who gather around the Word of God. Loved ones may have rejected them for their faith, but a much larger spiritual family readily embraced them when they came together with like-minded believers. Koinonia is strange sounding to our English ears, but this New Testament Greek word for Christian fellowship sets us apart from every other kind of community.

Incredibly unique, koinonia profoundly connects people who otherwise have little in common because they share the same spiritual DNA and speak the same spiritual language. I’ve been on the street in foreign countries where it was difficult to express myself because of the language barrier, but once I met up with believers, it was instantly a different story. Though we didn’t share a native tongue, the Holy Spirit united our hearts. How was that possible? We came together to worship God by focusing on the Word.

Dear saint, the Bible is the love language that you share with all other Christians. When God’s people come together in love and faith grounded in the Scriptures, that bond makes a diverse group feel like family—they experience the essence of koinonia fellowship.

I encourage you today to find, get to know, and fellowship with saints who believe God’s Word, love God’s Word, and obey God’s Word. After all, we’ll be spending eternity together.

Awaiting His Return,
