Holding All Things In Common

Session 4.16 for April 15, 2012

In Acts 4:32-35, we read about the early church’s selflessness in giving and sharing with their Christian brothers and sisters. In the Lenten and Easter season that we have just experienced, we recognize that our Savior gives all for us. In the Acts 4:32-35, we see a church who gives and shares everything in the spirit of Christ. In our lives today, we often compartmentalize faith – confession in Lent, celebration at Easter and Christmas, praying on Sundays, and service on summer mission trips. Our church families are often not the people that we actually even care about. We are scared to open ourselves up or give our all. The early church was excited and bold to share their faith and lives with one another.
