Yesterday I preached from Acts 2:42-47Acts 2:42-47
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, from...: or, at home 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
WP-Bible plugin. This is the ideal way to do church. This truly primitive church shows us the proper methodology of ‘how to do’ church.
People, today we don’t know the real way to do church. We think “BIG” is better. We think louder music, bolder preaching, and programs running out the door is the way to ‘have’ church.
The disciples had the right format for church. Evangelize, disciple the people, visit people’s homes for church/Bible study.
If today’s church followed this format there would be no mega-churches. There would a “mega” or abundance of spirit-led, discipled churches seeking to get out of the walls of the church to serve their communities.
