What our world needs now is . . . Love!
Love at Work in a Community
On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:
Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
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. 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 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 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
God loves us, we love Him, we love each other, and we love His world!
PEOPLE OF GOD – God’s people need each other!
PRAYER – Through prayer and reflection, we gain the perspective we need for life!
POWER – God’s power is real and available!
POSSESSIONS – We are mere stewards of what we possess. God has called us to life of generosity and grace!
PSALM 1 CHURCH – We have been called to live together in a spiritually transformative community!
Psalm 1 Church: A Spiritually Transformative Community
What is happening through us?
What is happening to us?
that which is seen and enjoyed
Who are we?
