"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42
Steadfast in the Apostle’s Doctrine: Worldly philosophy is not lasting; but the teachings of the Apostles, namely the Holy Scriptures – that will last for all eternity. We can be sure that what He says in His word is true today, tomorrow, and forever. Having a written English Bible to help us in God’s way is great – we don’t have to guess at what God wants to tell us!
Steadfast in Fellowship: In Acts 2:9, we learn that the church of God is made up of people from various ethnicities. No one people group are better or worse than anyone; in fact, for all those that call upon Christ for salvation, we are one. Our diverse backgrounds serve as celebration that Jesus’s death on the Cross was for all men! Even more - in heaven, we will be one and we will no longer fight with each other over denominations or beliefs. Galatians 3:28 points out, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Go find a local bible believing church to serve in! Every church needs a few good women and men to serve.
