Moving into our third year at Cornerstone, we continued the tradition of evaluating ourselves in light of Acts 2:42-47. The early church devoted themselves to the Apostle’s doctrine, prayer, the fellowship, and breaking bread together. How does a church in today’s society carry out that Biblical blueprint?
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. (ESV)
