The Body | Summer Devo Series #3

A group of four students gather for a Bible Study with scriptures in hand

“With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to house, sharing their meals with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God, and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.…” Acts 2:46


“Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.”

Ephesians 5:19-21


Acts 4:13 says, “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” The early church gave us the best example of how to live in fellowship, by the power of the Holy Spirit, post-resurrection, and pre-Jesus’ second coming. I LOVE Acts 4 because it confirms this…No level of schooling, talent, or skillset qualifies us to be in a relationship with or used by God. Only the blood!


This means we all can enter into fellowship with Jesus with confidence in His work on the cross. When we minister unto the Lord, especially in prayer, the Lord is not impressed with fancy words, long-winded sentences, impressive tone, or high-level speech. He loves what we offer Him and He IS the Word. He is the Author of all things. It ministers to Him to see us take what He’s given (the breath in our lungs, the words on our lips, our voice) and give it back to Him. This is worship.
