A CALL TO CONNECTION
“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.”
For a number of years, it has been my observation that the church has “going to the temple” down pretty well in that we have Sunday morning and midweek gatherings.
We have pretty much lost the practice of breaking bread from house to house, though, which really has to do with community. Perhaps the biggest reason that no one had needs was that he or she couldn’t hide out in the same kind of isolation that people do nowadays. Families and individuals were known and wrapped in relationship.
This is a call to connection. Even if each believer made it a point to befriend one other, we would gain ground…
and if neighbors started to break bread and really get to know each other?
It would be a revolution!
