Early Church (5)

We have learned a lot these past few days from the Christians in the early church in Jerusalem. These people were devoted and met together every day. They used their time to learn from their teachers. They shared their possessions and money with each other. And they also ate and prayed together.

God wants us to live like these Christians. Why? Because exciting things happen when we follow their example. Acts 2:47 shows us what happened to these Christians. “The believers praised God and were respected by all the people. More and more people were being saved every day, and the Lord was adding them to their group.” If we live like the Christians in the early church, more and more people will follow Jesus. And we will praise God for this!

There are many people in the world who do not know about Jesus. They do not know how to love and serve God. Some of these people are your family members, neighbors or co-workers. I hope you will live like the Christians in the early church in Jerusalem. Then more people will learn about God’s wonderful gift of salvation through Jesus.
