God is faithful by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 8:05 pm

Now having said that, turn with me in your Bible to I Corinthians 1:9 because I’m going to make my point about koinonia as a noun. I Corinthians 1:9. Your Bible reads “God is faithful, by whom you were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” That word ‘fellowship:’ koinonia. I really, because it’s so simple it might just get passed over and you might think it’s not a big deal because you understand what I said about giving God’s way.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that this is just like an overview. I could probably have done at least twenty different messages on each subject. I don’t want to have to come to Church every week and talk about money. But maybe the chance that one or two might hear what they’re supposed to do with the right spirit. God loves a hilarious giver. God’s way, not your way and our way is never His way. This is just too easy. “God is faithful by whom ye were called unto the fellowship,” koinonia ‘joint-participation,’ ‘sharers’ “of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Now maybe for some of you, you just kind of ‘Okay. Well that’s great, I’m already a sharer.’ Now, recognize something. Not only did He pay the price and you have the benefits but now again if you have been – here it goes, it’s a Scottism – if you’ve been ‘koinoniaing.’ It also means by this token you’ve been ‘koinoniaed’ by God. I want you to think about that because it’s so easy to say “Well I give.” Now I give with a right heart and the paradox is I turn around because I give with the right heart this is what He does. “God is faithful, by whom you were called unto the koinonia,” the joint-participation, “the sharing of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” That’s one.
