Acts 5:12-16

December 11, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

“But no one else dared to join them, even though all the people had high regard for them. Yet more and more people believed and were brought to the Lord – crowds of both men and women.” v 13-14

I am thinking about this verse and statement today:

What makes Christianity attractive? It is easy to be drawn to churches because of programs, good speakers, size, beautiful facilities, or fellowship. People were attracted to the early church, however, by expressions of God’s power at work; the generosity, sincerity, honesty, and unity of the members; and the character of the leaders. Have our standards slipped? God wants to add believers to his church, not newer and better programs or larger and fancier facilities. – NLT Life Application Study Notes

I would love to hear your thoughts!
