Each week on Thursday I simply post the text that will be the basis for the sermon on the following Sunday. As practice of making Sunday Special – i.e. “Honor the Sabbath Day” and getting the true refreshment physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially; I encourage you to take some time and ask God to prepare your heart to receive from Him whatever He would desire to teach you this week. Reflect on the passage Thursday thru Saturday – and I look forward to seeing you all this week at Christ Church (www.christchurchwestshore.com)
Acts 2:40 – 47 “Christ Church – A New Community”
And with many other words he (Peter) bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
