What should the church be like? Is there any guidance to be had? What are the marks of a Spirit-filled church? Let’s look at a model of the early church in Acts 2:42-47. What do we see?
First, the church must be gathered. Those early Christians came together as they were called by God; they didn’t try to exist in isolation. They learned to depend upon one another, and upon God. They gathered together; so must we. We respond to the Gospel as individuals, but we do not remain alone. We become part of something bigger than ourselves. This is the church.
