Uncommonwealth: Uncommon Love - Monday
“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
I am so excited about this series and specifically our topic of study for this week around “Uncommon Love.” Our focus on Acts 2:42-47 will serve to catapult us as a church as we gather around our mission of unleashing a revolution of love in Central Kentucky and beyond!
Being part of the local church is a privilege and a responsibility. There is no better time than the present to be inspired, compelled, and challenged to be a contributor in our mission. That is what the church is all about.
One of my most impactful memories was when my parents divorced and the church came alongside my dad to serve him. I remember going to the front door one evening with my dad and brother after we heard the doorbell ring. When we opened the front door we looked down at the sidewalk and saw twelve bags of groceries filled to overflowing.
We looked around to see who had left them and were getting ready to close the front door when two Elders from our Church walked from behind the house. They let us know they loved us and were there for us.
As we journey through Acts 2:42-47 this week, we are going to dive into these verses and see a snapshot of the early believers and their lives of community. This community, called the church, has an incredible assignment. This assignment includes you and me. This assignment takes holistic involvement.
In Acts 2 we read that the first followers of Jesus “had everything in common,” which allowed them to love people in uncommon ways. So, let’s rally together this week and just see what the Spirit will show all of us as we respond.
- What would it mean for our Church community to “have everything in common” as the early church did?
- Pray for our Church this week that we would see and hear what He wants to say and show us. And be on the lookout to love people in “uncommon ways.”
