Generous Grace, Generous Community
One reason the early church had fast growth with huge impact on society is this: they practically cared one another in Generous Community.
Act 4:32-47 gives us a beautiful "Foretaste of Heaven", where amongst His people, God's will is done on earth as it is in Heaven: with ALL needs - temporal & eternal – being met in His Church!
They could do this because of their confidence in the Resurrection, that this world is not our ultimate home...so they laid up treasures in heaven by sharing their earthly goods with one another to meet real needs. And so should we!
