Thursday Devotion: House to House 

“Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart.” - Acts 2:46 “

Friends, why did the early followers of Jesus go house to house? Perhaps it was to escape the crowds and noise of the temple. But I'd like to offer another idea. 

What if meeting in homes made it easier to spread the Good News, to break bread and enjoy fellowship just as God designed? In cozy living rooms, they shared intimate lessons from Christ over meals. Accountability and encouragement blossomed naturally. 

Doesn't this sound familiar? It's the beauty of community groups! God's design for community is timeless. After Pentecost, the disciples made more disciples, continuing Jesus' mission. In Acts 5:42, we read "Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah."

Even Paul gathered believers house to house (Acts 20:20). God knew we'd need intimate circles of faith within larger congregations. It's in living rooms where lives are changed - where lost are found, love is shared, and disciples grow. 

The early church met not out of obligation, but desire - to encounter Christ, embrace neighbors, serve selflessly, and expand God's kingdom. Accountability and encouragement blossomed organically. As they broke bread with gladness and sincerity, God multiplied their work.

Friends, will you join God's work? Will you answer the call to authentic community, meeting house to house with open hearts? Christ is still transforming lives in cozy living rooms, just as He did 2,000 years ago. You're invited to the table.
