The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W. F Kumuyi spoke about " The begining and building of true fellowship" in his teaching on True Fellowship to his church workers. He gave them the reasons why they need to develop a great relationship with God, Jesus Christ and the saint and also reasons why they should ensure such relationship.
He read from the book of Romans 12; 10: 12, 16 which says
" Be kindly affectioned one to another, with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another. "
*Be of the same mind towards another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceit"
He emphasized on the need for the fellowship between saints while on earth and urged them to love one another. The Cleric tells his members not to snub one another and also to be of the same mind towards one another. He said that when you snub people, and look down on people, they feel as if they are less than human beings. We need to give them much affection because when you are affectionate, and pay attention to their need, you are ensuring fellowship with them.
He goes further and ask his workers not to prefer themselves but prefer others before themselves. When there' s something someone is good at and you are not good at it, you have to prefer that fellow. You have to put others before yourself and condescend to men of low estate to ensure good fellowship among saints.
In conclusion, we should not snub one another because it does not strengthen relationship and fellowship. We should accommodate each other so as to foster unity, oneness and fellowship in the church. And as we obey, God will bless us in Jesus name. Amen
