A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and sincere hearts — all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
Devotion by Chris Shiver
When I read this scripture the thing that stood out most to me was the mention several times about how they were all physically together in one place, something that is not possible for our faith community right now or for an uncertain amount of time to come. So how do we maintain and possibly even add to our fellowship during the strange time? Lead by Rev. Courtney we are doing what is possible through modern remote communications mixed with careful occasional at a distance small gatherings and even old fashioned cards and letters, and prayers for each other and those who are most affected. God is not limited during this time by our current circumstances, and neither should be our faith and care for each other.
Jesus, I pray that during this time of physical isolation that you would keep my focus as much outward towards others as inward. Amen.
