47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
The Lord added to the church DAILY that tells me that they didn’t just wait till Sunday service and hope maybe someone would get saved but rather they constantly evangelized! Everyone doing their part not simply waiting for someone else to lead them.
We say we have so many disadvantages so did the Apostles. Our building isn’t as pretty as other churches. They had no building, our people many of our people don’t believe in God they had people who were devout Jews. How many of us have been stoned, crucified, boiled in oil, we have nothing to use as true reason.
WITHHOLDING LIFE-SAVING TRUTH
A while back, a Kansas City pharmacist was charged with diluting cancer treatment drugs, Gemzar and Taxol, in order to make a larger profit. So far there are 20 felony counts against the pharmacist, Robert Courtney. He admitted to diluting the drugs from November 2000 to March 2001.
This man held life-saving power in his hands and for the sake of personal gain diluted it to the point where it could not help people. We can do the same with God's life-saving truth.
