We are looking at “Holy Habits” on Sundays – what habits would be helpful to facilitate our growth?  To help us wake up?  To see the opportunity that the trials of this year afford?

This description describe some of the “holy habits” of the first church.  Take some time to read this passage each day.

Acts 2: 42-47

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  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.

Some questions to consider this coming week – please leave a comment below:

Next Sunday we are hoping for some feedback on these questions.

    I was struck by the phrase ‘glad and sincere hearts’.
    All week I have been asking what does that mean? Being ‘glad’ seems to imply a peace or a thankfulness – not always the same as being happy- somehow a state of mind and heart.
    And ‘sincere’ feels like a bit too vulnerable for most of us! but this is what we are told to be with each other. Open and honest. These sound a lot like the fruits of the spirit.

    Jacquie – great comment, thanks. I love that thought – open and honest. Very challenging to do.
