Connecting isn’t just about finding one or two close friends. For the Christ follower, finding your place in a larger collection of believers is also important. In this passage, we see perhaps the ultimate model of what the church should look like. It’s important to note that what brought them together was first their devotion to Jesus and his teaching. Everything else flowed from that central connection.
1. Evaluate how your connection with Christ is impacting the other relationships in your life.
2. How is your connection to the church? If it’s not what you’d like it to be, what steps can you take to strengthen it?
Challenge: Put your answer to question 2 into action. If your connection is strong, celebrate that fact and thank God. If it’s not where you want it to be, take action this week on one of the steps you listed above.
