Love & truth.

Today as I walked into church my heart was burdened by the division taking place in this nation, and even more so, the division taking place inside the church. I felt myself being consumed with uncertainty about the future of the church and how, as believers, we can find a way to come together to address the tension and intense division in the church. I was encouraged today by the teaching in Acts and I have confidence that the church will find community and unity through the love of Jesus and our shared purpose to encourage each other and spread the truth of the gospel to the world. My prayer is that, as a church, we would aim to be a church like the church in Acts. Today I will pray these words over the church, lay my burdens down at the cross, and dedicate myself to having a glad and sincere heart, praising God, and helping others.  
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47
