46 continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church* daily those who were being saved.
After the day of Pentecost, there was an incredible newness about everything. The Word of God was new, worship was new, going to church was altogether new. There was a newness about everything , the Holy Spirit had come and the world was a new place. Gathering together with other believers was the ultimate joy, they were sharing this new life together and they were flowing together in the love of God. Spiritual outpourings produce this atmosphere called koinenea in the local church. This word means sharing together. What were they sharing together in those early days in Jerusalem? They were sharing a common testimony. Each was experiencing a new intimacy with the Lord. This experience, our own personal testimony of Jesus is what we share. This is what makes church, church. This is the life that we share today in our churches, this is the life available to all of us. THE COMFORTER HAS COME !!! Something this precious has to be shared with others. Just like things in the natural world, new cars, new experiences,vacations,etc.we love to share these things with others. Are you connected to a body of believers? If not, find a good church and a good small group. Sharing this life with other christians is where our joy is made full.
