Acts 2:42-47: “They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles,
the life together, the common meal, and the prayers. Everyone around was in
awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the
believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold
whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person’s need was
met. They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by
meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised
God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God
added those who were saved.
