From the ancient Greek, usually translated as fellowship or community. Chuck Swindoll, in his book, Strengthening Your Grip, describes ‘Koinonia’ as, “Expressions of authentic Christianity, freely shared among members of God’s family. It is mentioned about 20 times in the New Testament and without exception; it is invariably in one of two directions.
‘First, it is used in the sense of sharing something with someone such as food, money, supplies, encouragement, time and concern. Second, it is used in the sense of sharing in something with someone, like a project, a success, a failure, a need, a hurt.
‘The significance of all of this is that biblical Koinonia is never something done alone. In other words, God’s desire for His children is that we be personally and deeply involved in each other’s lives.” I John 1:7 says, “If we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
“We serve because we love the One who first loved us.”
