My dear readers, I just want to let you know how much I miss you and that your precious being has meant a lot to me.
I've been thinking of you and I find it difficult to not communicate with you. I cherich our sincere Christian fellowship. Indeed, I've come to realize more and more that the communication among believers in Christ is something so special, sweet and vital.
"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship (koinonia) with us: and truly our fellowship(koinonia) is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
Koinonia= participation, communion, fellowship, sharing in, spiritual fellowship.
Oh, it is also interesting to note that in modern Greek, koinonia means "society."
It seems to me that something in intimate koinonia with the Father and with the Son flows out of our inner sanctum and joints us with the living, everlasting koinonia and its warmth. Where there is a true communion/fellowship, there is a loving communication as well. And I see that this kind of true communion/fellowship cannot endure dissention, dishonesty, disunity, bitterness and sins unconfessed. It drives us to the foot of the Cross and be reconciled. It is a life-giving flow which fills our hearts and spirits.
Several sisters have sent me touching emails. Thank you so much. As soon as I'm available, I'd love to reply to you individually. Just remember how much I love you!
