Thankful for Christian...

fellowship after worship with friends. One of the highlights of the Lord's Day for us is sharing a meal and hospitality with friends after church. We can discuss the sermon, talk about answered prayers, share new requests and above all, practice the building up of one another by our words and lives.

Today was one of those events where a crockpot full of lasagna, a green salad, Italian bread, rum cake and chocolate chip cookie bars tasted like ambrosia because it was shared amongst four families who delighted first in the Lord and then in one another. The children enjoyed playing together and the adults laughed like children. It was a sweet foretaste of feasting around the Lord's table in heaven.

I am thankful for Christian fellowship.

  1. Oh, me, too! Our church fellowship dinner is this evening and I am looking forward to meeting together with our church family!

  2. Yes! Everything that Kim said! My soup is in the crockpot right now waiting to be transported to our precious time together.

  3. I love how you phrased it: "sweet foretaste of feasting around the Lord’s table in heaven." Yes! I'm thankful for Christian fellowship, too.
