Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts Acts 2:46
What first comes to mind when you hear the word “Church”? For a lot of us, our thinking of church centres mostly around the weekly gathering, typically on Sundays. That gathering is very important; in fact in Heb 10:25 we are commanded to not give up the habit of meeting together, but rather to encourage one another. Equally important to the big church meeting are the encounters we have as we share meals and fellowship in each other’s homes.
These are equally crucial times, opportunities to build friendships and to strengthen the bonds of love, unity and fellowship. These are times to encourage one another in our worship of God. We sharpen one another and spur one another on towards love and good deeds. These are times to pray for each other and our families. Just as important as the formal meetings in the temple are the informal ones in the home. Today, schedule in and send an invitation to someone or some people to come and share a meal in your home. It will cultivate the devotion we have to one another and together to the Lord.
