Acts 4:32 ” All the Believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had.”

It tells us earlier in Acts that, “All the Believers were together and had everything in common.  Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.” (Acts 2:44-45)  This is how the early Church functioned…their inward focus was on unity and mutual care for one another.  For they took the Lord’s charge to “Love one another” very seriously.  And  because of everyone’s personal commitment to “see a need, fill a need” …the early Church exploded.  So I ask you, what would happen if all Believers committed to the “see a need, fill a need” directive…not waiting for someone else to do it, or thinking it’s only the Pastor’s responsibility?  The early Church’s focus was on perfect unity and mutual care for one another…the Church today could only benefit from this same focus.
