Scripture to meditate on: Acts 2.41–47

They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Thought to ponder:

“‘How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity.’ This is the Scripture’s praise of life together under the Word. But now we can correctly interpret the words ‘in unity’ and say ‘when kindred live together through Christ.’ For Jesus Christ alone is our unity. ‘He is our peace.’ We have access to one another, joy in one another, community with one another through Christ alone.”

—Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together, 47
