Acts 2:42-47: “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were
done by the apostles. All the disciples were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. 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,
praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
This passage tells of another miracle established by the resurrection a church made up of ordinary people that God used to change their world.
These new converts didn’t believe that Jesus was who He said he was until they saw how it affected His disciples’ every day life.
They were: committed to the teachings of Jesus; loved to fellowship with each other; loved to pray; filled with an awe for their great God; miracles were happing in their lives;
crazy generous to help one another materially; faithful to go to worship; joyful; genuine; and loved to praise God-in and out of worship.
