Learning To Grow

Acts 2:42-47 ESV

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common.
And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes,
they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”

As we live today, and we read this passage, how can we adjust our lives, or is it in God’s plan to follow this pattern?
Perhaps that particular lifestyle and pattern of growth and ministry was for that period of time.
We still are to have the same principles today, with results of others coming to know Jesus. A difference is that we cannot meet continuously. We do need to plan times to be taught and to teach, to have fellowship, and to minister to others and to pray.

How can we reach out and have an effect on the unsaved community?
By only meeting together, how can we be an influence to others?

Maybe at this time prayer has to take precedence over the other activities.
When time is spent in prayer, our relationship with God grows stronger, and we will hear His voice giving direction.

As we grow to know God better, we will be filled with awe, because He is Awesome. As we seek the Face of God, and meet with Him, we will not be looking for signs and wonders, but they
will happen.
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD
