Back to School: Join a Team - Day 2

Opening Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me to always be your voice, your hands and your feet, in whatever situation you place me in.  And that it is not my will but Thy will be done.  Amen.

Read: Acts 2:45 (NKJV)

“And sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need”.

Reflect:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live together in a community where everyone shared everything and there was a storehouse with an abundance of items for anyone?  That sounds too good to be true and may even sound impossible.  But God shows us that in the early church not only was it possible, but it was a daily routine.  Verse 46 states:  they "continued daily with one accord" (having group unity, having one mind and purpose). 

Apply:

Spontaneous and voluntary benevolence is a result of truly understanding God's love. Together we can care for one another and help to live as God intended for us to do….in community.

 

Closing Prayer:

Lord Jesus, help us to be ever mindful of the importance of being generous and benevolent. A true expression of your love in us, to others.  Amen.
