Acts 4:32-5:11 – Empowered to Experience the Power of God
This passage shows a massive contrast in the early church. It was a community shaped by the gospel of Jesus Christ that showed off the grace of God beautifully. Still, in those earliest days, people tried to take advantage of the community and elevate themselves to notoriety. That's right, the first Sunday after Easter we're jumping into the story of Ananias and Sapphira. This passage shows us the stark contrast between true gospel Christianity and self-centered religiosity. Let's lean in and learn from it together.
