    Default How do you build???

    Apart from this forum, facebook or any electronic medium, how do you build & fellowship with other believers? How does time, distance and individualism etc. play a role?

    The term koinonia in the Greek refers to having common life together. It's difficult to do that without investing time in each other. I've found this to be so true. Time is precious when it comes to true fellowship.

    You know how it is when you haven't spoken to someone in a while, and they ask you how things have been or what you've been up to? More often than not, we have very vague answers for them. We'll say something like, "Ahhh, not much. Just work and school"...stuff like that. In reality, we may have had some serious struggles in our lives and we feel like we need someone to talk to. But, it takes time and consistency to build up a level of comfort to share. People need to know that you care about them first before they are usually willing to talk about how they are really doing.

    I lack this type of consistent communication with some folks, but I am finding this more and more important as I walk through this Christian life. When you only get up with folks when it's time for formal ministry, yet don't share your lives together outside of those times, you're really missing out on the ministry of fellowship. We need each other. We build each other up, and we're a shining example to the world when we show love for one another and they can see a genuine commitment from us to each other.

    There are obstacles like time and distance which can be very difficult to work around. Difficult,yes. Impossible, no. Maybe we can't get with certain folks as much as we want, but we still try to consistently meet when we can. I have a good brother who I probably only see once a month. Though we can only meet up for ministry and fellowship about once a month (distance, he lives about an hour away), we still regularly call each other and see how the other is doing. That means a lot. We need to have relationships with people, not just acquaintances.

    As far as individualism goes, that's a tough one. In fact, while there is a certain level of individuality that everyone will have, there's a lot of dying to self that needs to take place in all of our hearts. The body of Christ needs people to give of themselves. We need each other (as stated above).
