New Testament Life

RE Verse reading–Acts 2:41-47, 4:32-35  (day one)  “and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. . .taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with the people.  And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved”  (2:45-47) One of the most powerful  “visions” of our fellowship is the prayer to be “a New Testament Church”.  Our text this week is a scriptural summary of this beautiful goal.  Living under the influence of the Holy Spirit, the first followers of Jesus became united, generous and happy participants in a society that the world had never seen.  These qualities inspired the people of the 1st Century and led them to Christ.  As we read this week, consider what the same testimony would today.  “He has put a NEW song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God”  (Psalm 40:3)
