Sermon: The Fellowship of the Church Acts 2:42-47

What does the Church do & what does God do in the text?

They devoted themselves to:

  1. The apostles teaching
    • What is this?
    • Why does it matter?
  2. The fellowship
    • What is this?
    • Why does it matter
  3. The breaking of bread
    • Acts 20:7-12
    • 1 Cor. 11:17-22
    • Jude 12, 2 Peter 2:13
  4. The prayers
  • Result: awe fell upon every soul.
  • Miracles verify the Prophecy of Joel 2- The final age has come!
  • We are a different kind of community!

God adds to their number those who are being saved!

Final point of application: The idea of a christian not being gathered into the church is foreign to the NT.  Christians gather with other christians.
