And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. - Acts 2:44–47 (ESV) There are some amazing pictures for what God does when He saves us. He redeems us. He frees us. He rescues us. He pays our debt. He adopts us. The first few lets us see what God has done for us and between Him and us. However, that final one adds another dimension. We are called, not only to Him, but also into a family. We (together) are His kids. We are going to talk about this idea this coming weekend. Mickey Counter will be opening God's Word to challenge us about our need to not only be connected to God through Christ, but be connected to each other because of Christ. One of the ways we do that at Hope is through Community Groups. Community Groups are smaller gatherings of households who meet regularly for study, encouragement, prayer, and outreach. We want to challenge everyone to make this type of connection with other believers at Hope.
