Sermon Notes

Early ChurchThis week we continue our message series looking at the beginnings of the
Christian Church in the early chapters of the Book of Acts. Toward the end
of Acts chapter 4 we read: “All the believers were one in heart and mind.
No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared
everything they had.” From this we learn that the Church of God is called
to be a life-sharing community. What does this mean? For one thing it
means that the gathering of the Body of Christ is unlike anything other
gathering in the world. When we come together in Christ’s Name, we do more
than just share the same space – we join our hearts and minds. Further, we

bear each other’s burdens. With whom are you gathering?
