44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:44-47
In these verses in Acts, we see the early days of the church, kind of in its’ infancy – and how wonderfully things went, as all were of one mind – a mind and heart to serve God. Selfishness is gone, and sharing, caring and charity replace it. And the LORD brought blessings to them in many ways, not the least of which was by increasing their numbers. A model for our world to think about during these turbulent times ?
Let us be in prayer : Creator God, in this world where only thinking of ourselves sometimes rules the day, help us to think more outwardly – to care for others less fortunate, to right the wrongs of injustice to others, to replace hate and anger with love and compassion. We are the church , the body of Christ. Guide us to be a cohesive unit, working and living together for one purpose – to bring the world closer to You, by giving You the praise and glory You deserve. In Jesus’ powerful name we pray, Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
