Back to Basics (Acts 1-2)

And they devoted themselves to the apostles ‘ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 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 favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

When the church began in earnest, Peter stood up and thousands of people were saved. Then what? They devoted themselves to the message the Apostles taught, the Gospel. They broke bread together, fellowship. And they didn’t consider anything they had more important than Jesus or His church, all things were “common.” There’s not some “higher level” we have to go to in order to really follow Jesus, we simply do the basics better. We devote ourselves to the Gospel, the Scriptures. We devote ourselves to the church, connecting to people and building relationships with them. We devote ourselves to prayer, connecting with God. We don’t consider anything more important than this. We’re meant to be well-rounded. Back to basics…
