And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
The new believers in Jerusalem assembled to share in the four activities of the first-formed church.
And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
The result was such fear and respect for God that their lives were being changed. And God was causing more and more people daily to believe and be finding liberation.
