bread and fellowship

bread and fellowship are quite similar.

you can mix the flour, sugar, milk, butter, salt, and water together and knead it until your fingers fall off. you can even glaze the dough and bake it in the oven. but unless you have added yeast and let the bread rise once or twice, you will not end up with bread.

in the same way, you can take christians, organize them in some sort of way. maybe they have talents that are useful for building each other up and teaching each other. they might even get put through hardship and trials together.

but unless God is with them, being the catalyst for their actions, leading them in the same direction with His goal in mind, it will not be a fellowship.

so let us remember the yeast when we meet, constantly looking for signs of its presence, letting God change us and transform us into something we couldn’t be by ourselves.

Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. 16 How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?

exodus 33: 15-16
