🎧 My Favorite Bible Breakdown Episode>>>
My favorite episode this week: Acts 2.
📚 The Church Is a Community. 👨👩👧👦
(Acts 2:42) All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord's Supper, and to prayer.
Observation: An amazing Psalm talks about how the Lord places the lonely in families. What I love so much about this text is that this is how the Church began. This verse sounds beautiful. The people had come from all over the known world to celebrate the first Fall Feast. They stayed because something more than their natural heritage united them. Now it was their spiritual heritage. They were now a whole new kind of family. Galatians says it no longer matters where you are from and who you are. All are welcome. My heart burns to see the Church look like this again.
Application: Never see the church as a closed social club. Also, be sure to never see the church as an open place with no lasting connections. It is a family that grows together.
