“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)
As you walk in Jesus’ footsteps this week, you should see in your life and that of your church four characteristics of the gatherings of the first Christians in Jerusalem.
The first mark is “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching.” That is, they continued intentionally and steadfastly in it. The Lord calls us to be faithful to the truth of his word. Do you trust in God’s word in scripture? Do you commit to the teachings of the Bible? Our calling is to continue in the apostles’ doctrine. It is imperative for any church that claims to be faithful to Christ.
The second mark is fellowship. This is vital for every believer. We were not designed to live alone, and to cut yourself off from the Christian community is to step toward spiritual disaster. Are you making supportive Christian relationships a priority?
The third mark is the breaking of bread. We do this as we gather to worship and participate in communion together.
The fourth mark is prayer. This is the center of our relationship with God, and we are privileged to be able to share in it together with fellow believers.
Let’s each reflect on these four essentials of the Christian life, and consider their importance to us.
In Christ’s love,
