Two are Better than One

We are better together.  We were meant for community, to live side by side and share the triumphs and tragedies of life with the people that God has put in our lives.  This is truth! I believe it to the core of my being.  Why then, do I often recoil at the thought of being in community, of showing bits of myself that I would really rather hide.

I’ve been reading lately in the book of Acts about the birth of the early church.  How the Holy Spirit lit a people on fire for Jesus. Throngs of believers were born as the good news of reconciliation began to take hold with the early believers.  The early church did everything together.

The community continually committed themselves to learning what the apostles taught them, gathering for fellowship, breaking bread and praying… There was an intense sense of togetherness among all who believed; they shared all their material possessions in trust. Acts 2: 42 & 44 (The Voice)

The passage goes on to describe a community that works together, plays together and provides for one another.   It was a community that was unified with one purpose; spreading the news of the beautiful gift of salvation that was given  at the cross.
