Acts 4 – The Believers Share Their Possessions
32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
When I think of the Biblical idea of Christian Conferencing, I think of this passage of the Bible. Not because I think we should redistribute all of our wealth but because of verse 32. They were one in heard and mind. They were so focused on God that everything else didn’t matter so much.
I enjoy getting together with my friends from church but there is a difference between “getting together to have fun”and “getting together to be one in heart and mind.”
In John Wesley’s Holy Club’s he used to always ask, “How is your soul today?” That, my friends, is Christian Conferencing. When we are more concerned with someone’s soul than with their Facebook status then we are becoming more Kingdom focused and can channel God’s grace at work in our lives.
