Fellowship

Hebrew 10:25, "not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."

As human beings, we cannot live alone. Whether we realize it or not, we need one another. Moreover, as a man who has been redeemed by God, that we may live holy and away from all sin, we need friends in faith that are mutually strengthening. Fellowship is an important means for the Christian life. The author of Hebrews tells us to attend and follow the meetings constantly and diligently. Some translations use the word "meet together" or "assembling together". 

Living in secular country like Australia sometimes makes us fall asleep. So often we no longer recognize ourselves and our calling before God. We are drifted by the teaching of this world that makes us farther away from God. This is the point of having fellowship, that we may share with each other, pay attention and encourage one another in love and good works, which God has given us all. 

Hebrew 10:22-25, "Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

GRII Melbourne held fellowships in accordance with the various age group. We are longing for all to find fellowships and live abundant life in the community-based fellowship of the Triune God.
