THE BIBLICAL BASIS OF OUR FELLOWSHIP

1Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.1John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

UNITY IN THE CHURCH OF GOD

I do not recommend using “Lexicons” in Bible study at all. In the 51 years I have been a Christian I have never referred to a Lexicon to get the “meaning” of a word in the King James Bible. I also do not go to the “Hebrew” or “Greek”in Strong’s or Young’s Concordances (or anywhere else). The Holy Bible is my FINAL AUTHORITY when it comes to determining the”meaning” of God’s words.I also caution Christians about using English Dictionaries (as their “Final Authority”) in determining the meaning of words (in the Bible) that have any “spiritual significance”, since many of the people involved in the production of a dictionary are unsaved and have little or no spiritual discernment or understanding. I believe that Noah Webster was a saved man, but even Webster’s 1828 Dictionary must be used with caution when it comes to the meaning of words (in the Bible) that have “spiritual significance”, since it is evident that Noah Webster was influenced by his Denominational “point of view”. {As evidenced by his definition of the words “heart”,”mind”, “spirit”, and “soul”,etc.}

When it comes to English words of little or no”spiritual significance”, English Dictionaries (especially Webster’s 1828) can be helpful in understanding the meaning of many words (especially those so-called “archaic” words in the King James Bible), as long as we don’t regard these Dictionaries as”Final Authorities” in regards to the meaning of ALL words. In the case of the English word “UNITY” Webster’s definition comes real close to the Bible definition of the word.
