Acts 2:46-47 ” 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.”

These verses give us a beautiful picture of the early Church. From meeting together daily in the Temple to praise and worship the Lord, to sharing meals together and celebrating the joy of the Lord in what they called Table Fellowship… the early Church was united with mutual love and concern one for another. And this kind of lovingkindness did not go unnoticed…for their Christ-like actions and attitudes spoke volumes to those unsaved watching them…”And the Lord added to their number daily.” So what can we take from these verses? Maybe the Church today needs to go back to the basics of the early Church, changing focus from building programs to building up people, from disunity and descension in the pews to unity, righteousness, peace, and joy within the walls…so that others may see our fruit and desire what we have.
