Yesterday we learned that Christians in the early church met together every day. They were devoted to following Jesus and growing as Christians.
In Acts 2:42, we learn several more things that these early Christians did. “The believers spent their time listening to the teaching of the apostles. They shared everything with each other. They ate together and prayed together.” The apostles were men Jesus chose to be His special helpers. The believers paid attention to the apostles. They learned from the teaching of the apostles. And these Christians respected the apostles.
Today we have many pastors and teachers in our churches. These people use their time to teach us about God. We should use our time to learn from these pastors and teachers. We should pay attention to their teaching from God’s Word. And we should respect these people. Why? Because they work hard to teach us.
I am thankful for pastors and teachers who taught me about Jesus. I am a Christian today because of their teaching. You should be thankful, too. Be like the Christians in the early church. Pay attention to your pastors and teachers.
