They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:42-47
When I read these verses from the book of Acts, the negro spiritual, Let Us Break Bread Together comes immediately to my mind. The church is a family, and we should spend time worshipping, praising, praying, celebrating the sacraments, and sharing with one another. Every day is a chance to be together with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Are you making the most of that opportunity?
