The Birth Of Christian Fellowship

Ever thought much about what was happening beneath the cross when our Lord entrusted his dear mother to his beloved disciple John? The ultimate precedent for Christian fellowship was being born.
"Beneath the cross Christian fellowship is born, a fellowship wholly different from all purely human fellowship based on natural kinship, mutual sympathy, or a common outlook upon human affairs. The great and distinctive characteristic of this new fellowship is that all who enjoy it are drawn to one another by the consciousness that they are all brothers for whom Christ. died." ~ R.V.G. Tasker
"Dear woman, here is your son.  John, here is your mother," are words that birth the fellowship that marks the true body of Christ.  More than mere suggestion or recommendation...they are words by which we are legally declared to be brothers and sisters in Christ just as surely as we are legally adopted as the children of the living God by the blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
