With Glad and Generous Hearts

The Acts of the Apostles tells us of the joy that the first Christians experienced as they had fellowship together: “Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts.” Sunday’s sermon will take a look at the lessons we can learn from those first Christians as we listen to Acts 2: 42-47, and Acts 4: 32-37.
The believers were enthusiastic, and the root of the word enthusiasm is in the Greek words en theos, to be “filled with God”. Their lives were filled with God, and while each member of the community had their own personal experience with God, it was in the community of believers that faith was meant to be nurtured and shared.
