Early Church (4)

Christians in the early church were devoted. They used their time to pay attention to their teachers. They shared their money and things with other people.
The last sentence in Acts 2:42 says, “They ate together and prayed together.” The words “ate together” may mean a meal or the Lord’s Supper. Christians in the early church ate the Lord’s Supper together. They also had meals together. Acts 2:46 says, “They ate together in their homes. They were happy to share their food and ate with joyful hearts.”
The early Christians also prayed together. Praying with others is very important. The staff of Deaf Missions meets every Monday morning to spend time praying together. (The staff of Deaf Missions also spends time eating together!)
We should also eat the Lord’s Supper on the first day of every week (read Acts 20:7). We should eat and share our food with others. When we share our food, we have fellowship with other people. Also, we should spend time praying with others.
Tomorrow we will learn what happens when we do the things that the early Christians did.
