What is Fellowship?

If the focus of our fellowship is with others, our sight is out of focus because we are bypassing the Head and trying to have fellowship on some ground other than Christ.

The Bible clearly teaches that "what we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ…if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another…" (I John 1:3,7).

The trap of religiosity and self-righteousness is; it causes us to be blind to the truth of our spiritual condition. The picture presented to us in Revelation 3 is one of Christ standing on the outside, knocking at the door, and waiting for someone to open the door to Him. Since this is written to the saints it cannot be construed as an invitation to sinners to "invite Jesus into their heart"; instead, it is the Lord calling upon His church to make Him the center again.

The issue was, and still is fellowship, communion, and abiding with our Lord. Our maintaining a relationship with Jesus is fellowship, then fellowship with each other is based on mutual fellowship with God.
