Sometimes Christians ask me, “How can I live like Jesus?” I often tell them to study the early church in Jerusalem. The early church was the group of people who became Christians soon after Jesus died. I tell these Christians to do the same things the early church did.
Today and for the next four days, we will learn about the early church in Jerusalem. Acts, chapter 2, tells us what the early church was like. Peter preached to a group of people about Jesus. Acts 2:41 explains what happened after Peter preached. “Then those who accepted what Peter said were baptized. On that day about 3000 people were added to the group of believers.” The rest of chapter 2 tells us what these new Christians did. Christians in the early church met every day. They stayed together. They were devoted to each other.
We should follow the example of the early church. We need to meet together often with other Christians. We need to be involved in times of worship and praise. We need to study the Bible together. We need to be devoted to each other.
I hope you will be like these early Christians in Jerusalem.
