A human being lives, but he is given life.
The Greek word used in the New Testament for Church is ekklesia, which means “called out ones.” We men and women respond to the Holly Spirit’s conviction to accept Christ ad their savior, they become part of the ekklesia, The called out ones. Paul calls the church the “pillar and ground of the truth” those called out are to believe, live and teach the truths of God’s word.
The New Testament calls for “Fellowship” the New Testament concept of fellowship is much broader than most Christians realize. The Greek word translated fellowship is koinonia. The noun form of this term means to share in, participate in, or to be actively involved in. The verb form of the word means to communicate, distribute, and impact. So this word means sharing ones hope, dreams, struggles, and pains. Not just sitting down and having lunch with them. If Christians are not having this type of relationships with one another, they are falling far short of God’s plan for the church.
