Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. Acts 4.32-34
Loving Father, in the face of Jesus Christ your light and glory have blazed forth. Send your Holy Spirit that we may share from your abundance with our friends the life of your Son and your love for all. Strengthen us as a witness to that love as we pledge to pray for them, for your name’s sake. Amen.
