“Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common” (Acts 4:32).
When we read verses like this, we tend to dismiss them as only possible in the Early Church. Let me ask you a few questions:
· Has God’s plan for His Church changed since Acts was written by Luke?
· Is the Holy Spirit no longer able to work this depth of unity today in the Body of Christ?
· If your answer is “NO,” what has changed since then?
As we have been going over the significant events of the last couple of chapters of Acts, we see this unity is clearly a work of God in the Church. That is what needs to happen in the Church today, and when we are completely submitted to the Holy Spirit along with the His authority and the authority of Scripture, we will see God work in powerful and unusual ways.
Unity is never planned! It is the result of true submission by all to Christ as Head and the Spirit. Let it begin with you and me, NOW!
