Acts 2:42-47

42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.

43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. 45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. 46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity— 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

4 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? 16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:

“I will live in them
and walk among them.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers,
and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord.
Don’t touch their filthy things,
and I will welcome you.
18 And I will be your Father,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: What influence do your friends have on your spiritual growth? Do they drag you when you are tired or weak? Do they help to bring you back into alignment with Christ when you are struggling, or are they working to get you away from living for Jesus? What kind of influence are you on your friends’ spiritual growth? Are you a help, or a hindrance?

Q: What can you do to aid your own spiritual growth? How can you see growth in your own life in order to then grow with others? Are you seeking out opportunities to engage in common experiences in order to build history? How will your growth impact the environment of faith at your church?
