3 Bible Tips: How to Fellowship
1. Approach fellowship as a chance to serve others.
"And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Matthew 20:27-28).
2. Encourage and build up each other, striving to give each other what the other person needs.
"Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing... Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all" (1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14; see also Hebrews 10:24).
3. Ask questions to get to know what the other person wants you to pray about.
"Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" (James 5:16).
