One of the immediate impacts of the presence of the Spirit in the early church was a distribution of resources so everyone’s needs were met. The new believers also saw their homes as a place for blessing other with food and fellowship.
Questions for Reflection:
- How does this passage compare with your experience of the Spirit’s presence in your faith community?
- Why do you think it is so difficult for many people to open their homes to others?
- How could you use your food and/or your dining room to make sure others are fed physically and socially?
