Thought of the Day !!

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 2:46-47 (NIV)

These are the original members of the Church.  They started the Church under the guidance of the Apostles and the Holy Spirit.  Maybe we could learn a thing or two from them.

First of all they continued to meet together.  How many Christians today find other things to do on Sunday mornings or other times of worship?  

They broke bread together.  They shared meals together.  They were sincere.  They praised God and enjoyed the favor of others.  Even when we do meet there may be those of us who are not sincere in our love for each other.  We may half-heartedly praise God, all the while looking at our watches to see how long before the service is over.  

Let us learn true worship from the earliest Christians.  True worship is about sharing and showing love for each other.  It's about coming together for God's glory and gladly giving Him our time and efforts.  

May we come to see God as an awesome and powerful, yet gracious and merciful Lord.  May we all realize that worship is about Him being glorified.  May we all seek Him steadfastly today, much like the believers of old.

In the love of Christ,
