Are you a destroyer or a restorer?

In Acts 9:26-31,  we see how the “church” originally reacted to Paul after his conversion.  In this passage, he hasn’t yet taken the name of Paul (the first time Saul is called Paul is found Restore-Mein Acts 13:9, which shows us that Saul took upon himself the name of his first convert Sergius Paulus (Acts 13:7)).  The Disciples were afraid of Paul at the first and did not believe that he was a fellow believer.  They were ready to discount Paul because of his past.

The 4 C’s of Fellowship with God are as follows:

1. Conditions for Fellowship

2. Conduct for Fellowship

3. Characteristics of Fellowship

4. Consequences of Fellowship

Read 1 John 1:3-7

As we discussed in our previous Lesson on The Conditions for Fellowship with God, The first 2015 02 14_Washington Township Park_2246_edited-1step is to ensure that you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Once that is settled, then you may turn your attention towards maintaining and/or improving your fellowship with him.(Philippians 3:10)

You will notice that in the passage that you have just read, the issue at hand is NOT salvation, but rather is FELLOWSHIP with your Saviour. In the first two verses we read 3, That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
