Fellowship among the members of the early church


FELLOWSHIP AMONG THE MEMBERS OF THE EARLY CHURCH
On the day of Pentecost, three thousand new souls were added to the disciples. The events of the day of Pentecost put fear in many of the followers and many signs and wonders were performed by the disciples.

The followers continued in the doctrines of the Apostles and fellowshipped together and breaking bread. They were together and had everything in common.

Some sold their possessions and brought same to share with others as was needed. They met both in the Temple and also in their houses where they broke bread. They were of one accord and were happy.

They praise God and had favour with all men and the Lord added to their number everyday as and when souls were won.

They lived as a community of people, no one said anything belong to him or her, they all shared in the items in common. The Apostles witnessed greatly to the people about the resurrection of Jesus. None of them lacked anything. 

Those who had lands or houses sold them and brought the money to the Apostles. Those that had need of something were given according to his needs. A man called Joses, whom the Apostles named Barnabas sold his plot of land and brought the money to the Apostles.
