For the past few weeks, I have been returning to the book of Acts and the actions of the early church. I am blown away by how these believers lived! Their faith drove them to action and radically transformed their lives. Their love for all people was incredibly evident. God increased the size of the church drawing more and more people to himself.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47 (ESV)
Today I am praying for:
- The church
- People of God to be filled with faith and led to love our neighbors
- An outpouring of the Holy Spirit
What stands out to you about the church in the book of Acts?
What is God saying to you?
