(Paul’s letter to the Romans) I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong – that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each others’ faith.
Fellowship is something that Jesus demonstrates over and over again throughout the Bible. He’s the perfect example of how connecting with people and spending time together can strengthen one another, specifically in their faith.
Paul has learned this, and so in his letter to the Romans he says he has a longing to see and meet up with the Romans so that they can encourage each other in their faith. He describes this as a spiritual gift.
In our day to day lives, we need to take the time for fellowship (defined as companionship). We need to meet each other, spend time together and encourage one another in our faith. In doing that, we can impart a spiritual gift to each other.
Make room in your life to encourage your friends, and to be encouraged in return. God didn’t create us to live our lives alone.
