Acts 2:46-47 – Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.- Going to church in those days must have been very different than today. I wonder if it was even called church (which simply means an assembly, or the called together ones) yet. Remember these were not just early Christian churches, but the first ones. There may have been copies of the old testament around, but the complete Bible as we know it had not been finished yet and there were very few Christian “professionals” then. We’re told they met everyday, not just on Sunday morning as we do today. There were no specialized church buildings with specialized furnishings, but we’re told the people met in the temple courts and their homes and shared meals (they had what we call fellowship today) with glad and sincere hearts. We often think that a church is our idea, but it is God working through us that builds a church and saves people, and we must make sure that we keep his word there or it will be useless in a Christian sense. Though the first Christians didn’t have some of the things we do, it sounds like they had the one thing that’s important, that is faith in Jesus Christ. They believed he alone could save them from their sins. Something we all need to remember no matter what church we go to. What About Jesus?
