November 1-7 Family Devotions
Week of November 1 – 7
WHAT REAL COMMUNITY LOOKS LIKE (Acts 2.42-47)
All the believers were devoted to the church community and they kept showing up to participate… listening to the church’s teaching, spending time talking and laughing and praying together, having dinner parties, and gathering at the Lord’s table for communion.
Honestly, it was pretty great! There was a sense of joy and wonder among the people. So many good things were taking place… God was with them and they even saw miracles happen.
They shared everything they had and took care of anyone who had a need. Their generosity was unlike anything anyone had seen before.
The believers worshiped together with one voice, in unity.
People started to notice what was happening in the church – how there was so much joy and generosity, how quick they were to help when anyone was in need. Even those who weren’t believers had to admire what was taking place—it was obviously something special.
And God just kept adding more and more people to the church, every single day.
“Don’t spend all your time thinking about yourself – what you want and what you need.
Be sure to think and care about others, because they have real needs too.”
