Tuned In To Selflessness
All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all. There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need. Acts 4:32-35 This was an awesome text to read from because these followers of Christ were so selfless. Everyone can glean from this text in how to show selflessness so that no brother or sister is in need. These people had a great sense of unity as well and had a goal of taking care of the body of Christ so it could flourish, no matter the cost. In the beginning of Psalms 133 it talks about how unity is good and in that God will bless us and I believe that was being shown here. They gave there time, talent, and treasure and when the church can do that it can grow. We are the church so we should be in tune with the body so when our brother or sister is in need we can be there for them. If we have relationship with them they won't be afraid to ask for anything but if we are in communion with each other and coming together we should already know some things and how we could step in. So when the world sees this they see our love for one another and it can draw them in. With this being said we can pray and ask God to make us selfless and compassionate towards each other so that the body is not in lack in any aspect.
