Acts 2 Church

(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) 

  1.  They devoted themselves to teaching.
  2.  Awe came on every soul, on the whole gathering. 
  3.  All who believed came together, sharing all things in common. 
  4.  They were selling their possessions and distributing the proceeds to all. 
  5.  They attended the temple together. 
  6.  They shared meals together. 

God never intended us to grow our faith in isolation but rather within a community of faith called “the church.” Acts 2:42-47 is the hope of what our fellowships could and should look like.   I pray that ever church becomes more and more like an Acts 2 church.
