A human being lives, but he is given life.
I personally believe that the Lord is moving His people to work more closely at what the New Testament church was like. I believe that we are not only being called to continue “Steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine” but to continue steadfastly in fellowship, in the breaking bread and in prayer (Act 2:42). God is calling His children to be His remnant people just like He called the early church, not only in doctrine but in fellowship as well.
Let’s take a look at what God’s early church was like. As the Christians became unwelcome in the Jewish temples, their homes became meeting places. Many verses in the Bible support this (Acts 20:20,
Romans 16:5, 1 Cor. 1:16). The apostles certainly understood the importance of small home fellowship. For three and one half years they had worshipped and fellowshipped with Jesus in this manner. These small fellowship groups were conducive to growth. The close, intimate fellowship that results from the smaller group creates a very close bond between members of the group.
As God said in the beginning, “it is not good for the man to be alone” (Gen. 2:18) it is also not good for the Christian to try to withstand the forces of Satan and the world alone.
Supporting Scripture; (1 Cor. 16:19), (Col 4:15), (Acts 1:13),(Act 2:47)
