44 And all who believed were together, and had all things in common;
45 They sold their possessions and goods, and distributed the proceeds among all, as every man had a need.
46 And they continued daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.6
|1 Corinthians 1:18 |
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God.5 [Those who take up the inward cross of self-denial quickly experience the power of God to begin freeing them from sin. From the Word of the Lord within: "With the true gospel there is ample proof along the way. There are many that deny the cross and all that is necessary. He who is not on the cross is not worthy of me. The purpose of this website is to teach you how to carry your cross. Every man that comes, must come through the cross;—I say every man!"]
