Have you ever said something, and the listener heard something completely different? Poor communication has been with us for centuries. The word ‘Fellowship’ (from the original Greek Koinonia) can be misconstrued as well. It meant gathering as friends but also to hold something in common.
Thomas’ disbelief put a damper on the fellowship of the disciples in the week following Jesus’s resurrection. It took his seeing Jesus with his own eyes to bring him back into fellowship with the rest of the disciples. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed! May we also believe, not like Thomas, but with true belief as we join the symphony of God’s believers, each contributing our part to His fellowship!
