Scripture: Acts 4:33,34
Verses 33,34 describe the great power that was upon the apostles to witness to the resurrection! Great grace was upon them all. As a result, no one said anything he possessed was his own because they sold their properties and gave the proceeds. Here we see a process of serving one another that is almost extreme in today’s standards. Yet, it began to establish a biblical standard by which those who were not willing to walk in this dimension were ultimately judged unworthy. We see a potential pattern begin to develop. We see the pattern in the early church but it is one we may soon see repeated. I do not mean through selling of property and communal living. The Holy Spirit could make sexual purity the standard. How will we respond if persecution leads believers into a home church environment?
