Acts 2:42-47 NIV
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 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, 47 praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Yesterday was Pentecost Sunday, the day we remember God giving the Holy Spirit to dwell in his people. Today’s passage describes one of the out-workings of this, the forming and transforming of his new covenant people, a foretaste of what life in his future Kingdom will be like.

Spirit, deepen and transform our relationships with each other and our Father as you did for the early church.
