Happy Times (8)

Some of my happiest memories are of times when I have been with other Christians — fellowship meals, summer camps and Bible studies.

Our Bible verses today tell us about Christians in the church in Jerusalem. These people ate together, prayed together, studied with the apostles and shared everything they had. Verse 46b says, “They were happy to share their food and ate with joyful hearts.”

Wow! These Christians were probably facing times of persecution. Their family members, friends and people they worked with couldn’t understand why they were following Jesus. These new Christians could have been sad and upset. Instead, they were happy and joyful!

Be happy when you have opportunities to study and share with other Christians. Thank God for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
