Greetings in the Strong Name of the Lord,
We continue with ‘Going Retro with Acts Chapter 2’ and this week begin, Part 3:
Acts 2:42-46 DEMONSTRATION
In this section of Scriptural template, we see the demonstration of the Church and the lifestyle of the early believers.
Discovering how they engaged their world and practiced their faith is so insightful and revelatory.
Let’s look at the characteristics of their Church life.
– They were consistent in their commitment to the truth…
– They were consistent in fellowship and relationship…
– They were consistent in their prayer life…
– They were consistent in their generosity and care for one another…
– They were consistent in coming together in worship, in both large and small gatherings…
– They were consistent in demonstrating their faith both privately and publicly…
– They were consistent in their love for God…
What a tremendous display of what we know as Christianity. It is simply the continuation of the lifestyle of Jesus. They were duplicating His way of living, loving and serving. This is a pattern worth reproducing that is validated throughout all of the New Testament. Loving God supremely and loving others, as we love ourselves, are the greatest commands.
