We are working on a new series / season at Action Church that we are calling “The Pursuit.” The idea is to look at the Biblical Early Church and see what Jesus expects for us as His followers and then compare that to what we actually do.
It will be a challenging, inspiring and transformative season as we will also begin a 21 Days of prayer and fasting as we pursue God more in our daily lives.
One of the key Scriptures that has stuck out to me in my study is this:
Acts 2:42-47 NLT
All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.
43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. 45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. 46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
Emphasis being on “devoted”.
Could it be that we aren’t seeing “The Church” look like Jesus because our devotion is lacking?
We will see as we begin this journey on Sunday, August 30 at 9:00 and 11:00. Hope you can join us!
