Read Acts 2:42-47
42They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers.
43 Many miracles and wonders were being done through the apostles, and everyone was filled with awe. 44All the believers continued together in close fellowship and shared their belongings with one another. 45They would sell their property and possessions, and distribute the money among all, according to what each one needed. 46Day after day they met as a group in the Temple, and they had their meals together in their homes, eating with glad and humble hearts, 47praising God, and enjoying the good will of all the people. And every day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved.
It is wonderful to imagine the kind of community that the first church became. A communion of people who shared meals together and helped those who were struggling. It seems the world beyond the church was impressed by the depth of their love for each other.
Pray for your church. Pray that we would have the courage to love each other more faithfully and sacrificially.
