Acts 02:42 (NIV), They DEVOTED themselves to the apostles’ TEACHING and to FELLOWSHIP, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Upon receiving Christ Jesus as the Lord/Master of your life, responsibility is laid upon you to grow (deepen and wax mighty) in your accurate knowledge of God. Key to always remember is that, it’s your accurate knowledge of God that separates you from the masses and even causes you to shine more among the saints.
In this growth in knowledge of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ and what He has availed for the Church presently, we are translated more and more into His image. Realize, it’s impossible to reflect and display to your worlds a God Who is not revealed to you (your heart). Think about that!
Every revelation of Christ ushers you to a place of mastery in that area of revelation. For example, your grasp of Him as your Healer and Health sets you on high pertaining to your health; you begin to reflect this peculiar soundness of health as this accurate knowledge settles in you. Hallelujah!
It’s for this cause of continued/perpetual growth in Him that the Spirit of the Lord admonishes us to continually gather together as the Church of Jesus Christ for our sharpening and enlightening. And even prepares set men and women to help in our growth. This is the beautiful truth that we pick from our lead verse.
Beloved, this is the consciousness that you are to cultivate and even posses as you join the brethren in God’s household this day and others to come; As God’s Own, you rise and fall in the matters of life to the extent of your devotion to God. Embrace this dearly!
Our corporate fellowship exists for this continued growth of the body of Christ (individually and wholistically). Arise this day and commit to fellowship oftenly with God’s household. Praise the Lord!
Acts 02:46 (MSG), They followed a DAILY DISCIPLINE of WORSHIP in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful.
As God’s Own, you rise and fall in the matters of life to the extent of your devotion to God.
It’s impossible to reflect and display to your worlds a God Who is not revealed to you (your heart).
