I had a great time last night at our Wednesday night gathering, after the meal time we have been working through a study on apologetics. We have been talking about all the thing that trip people up when it comes to matters of faith in the bible, God, Jesus Christ and so on. When a very important point was raise! Why are we so disconnected from each other? And again my mind and heart floods back to Acts 2:42-47
This is the model of a New Testament Church.
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 parsing God and having favor with all people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
Can we expect God to move in our life and in the life of others if we live to a standard less than this?????
We have a fundamental issue that has to be corrected And it starts with Jesus He has to come to the front of the line in our lives……until we put HIM first, nobody else has a chance and NoBody will believe our message. and thats the way i see it in my market.
