Early Church (4)

Christians in the early church were devoted to God. They used their time to pay attention to their teachers. They shared their money and possessions with other people.

In Acts 2:46 we read about one more thing these early Christians did. “The believers shared a common purpose, and every day they spent much of their time together in the Temple area. They also ate together in their homes. They were happy to share their food and ate with joyful hearts.” The words “ate together” from this verse may mean a meal or the Lord’s Supper. Christians in the early church shared their meals and remembered Jesus by eating the Lord’s Supper together.

We need to eat the Lord’s Supper with other Christians. We also need to eat meals and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. When we do this, we strengthen the Christian bond we have with each other.

These Christians also prayed together. Praying with others is very important. We can encourage other Christians by praying for their needs and their spiritual growth.

Tomorrow we will learn what happens when we do the things that early Christians did.
