May the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with You
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. – 2 Cor 13:14
This is a benediction, and a wonderful one at that.
Isn’t it amazing that it is the fellowship of the Holy Spirit that is being wished upon us?
It could have said, the power of the Spirit or the wisdom of the Spirit, but no, it’s the fellowship; the companionship, the company, the family, the communion, the koinonia, the partnership, the togetherness, the close relationship, the sharing, the bonding, the enjoyment of each other’s company, the interchange, the binding together, the friendship, and the helping that goes with the word fellowship.
It is a divine and spiritual fellowship that you are being blessed with.
Worshipers, the next time that you hear this at the close of worship, take heart, take comfort, and smile for God loves you and is with you.
Pastors, maybe you could consider using this passage of scripture to close your Pentecost worship. Pentecost is on June 12 this year.
