The Essence of Koinonia
Fidel accompany dad to Ipoh on 27-28th Apr to preach at Elim Gospel Hall's young adult and youth fellowship anniversary.
It is important for dad to have separate private time with each of you, to build our close relationship individually.
We had a good time chatting and laughing all the time.
When dad was preaching, Fidel sat alone quietly at the front row. I am a very proud dad.
Using only one verse from 1 John 1: 3, "that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.", dad pointed out that true fellowship is build upon individual's spiritual fellowship with God and His son through the Spirit.We must ensure we are 'in' the fellowship in the first place, not allowing activities to mislead us of thinking that we are, but actually is 'out side' of the true spiritual fellowship. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the means to enter into the fellowship, and the fellowship grows through the preaching of the good news.
Thank God for this wonderful fellowship with the church and with my son.
