Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common. Acts 2:44 NKJV
Now the multitude of those who believed of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. Acts 4:32 NKJV
To unleash the full power of the holy spirit that dwells within the heart of each believer, we must understand that’s His supernatural power is present and that it is being contained by a lack of unity. Luke expressed how the church came together at the beginning in the book of Acts and how great miracles and wonders came up on them.
We have been taught to believe that we can do all things ourselves, as we see each week a book is released by Christians and non-christians alike to offer solutions to human created problems. However, to cultivate a community of loving fellowship we must speak truths. Most people have no one in their lives who love them enough to tell them the truth so they continue in self-destructive ways.
We can have what the early Christians had by coming together in love and humility with an honest desire to uplift each other. Pride builds walls between people, humility builds bridges. Humility is the balm that soothes relationships, we must learn to wrap ourselves with humility towards one another.
