Acts 2:46 – Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.

 

Christian faith is 24/7. It is also corporate. Every day, Luke says, they continued to meet together in the temple courts. Indeed, the gatherings are so integral to Christian experience that when one pastor noticed there has been a dropping off, he urged his congregation to continue meeting together, encouraging one another daily (Hebrews 10:25). If we don’t do this it is amazing how quickly we lose our way. Like the piece of coal that is taken out of the brazier, it is not long before we grow cold. Conversely, by worshipping together, declaring with one voice the praises of God, which is where Pentecost began, we maintain the fire of the Holy Spirit among us.

 

Prayer: Lord, I commit afresh to the dailiness of Christian faith, seeking by whatever means to meet together with my brothers and sisters. Amen.
