When speaking about the fellowship of believers, Luke wrote in Acts 2:42 and 2:46: “They devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer … 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.”
Clearly, the believers in the early church were devoted and committed to one another — they connected. Yet, when we examine our lives today, we are all busy, overscheduled people. We recognize people at church but really don’t know them beyond a casual “hello” in the parking lot or a greeting in a church hallway. Jesus wants our relationships to be more than that.
George Bullard, a strategic leadership coach and author, put it like this in a recent perspective column on BaptistNewsGlobal.com: “Every household connected with a congregation needs at least six other households who would bring them a casserole if they had a death or crisis in their family. Another way to look at it is if you can name at list six other households you would call at 3 a.m. when you have a crisis and they would welcome your call, then you have a healthy depth of emotional and spiritual support.”
