It seems like they had such an overflow of sorts.. a pure-goodness inside if ya will, but not that the people involved were perfectly good or saw themselves that way. But they enjoyed what was good and just had to unselfishly get their good Message that they had.. out to others for their benefit. There was an urgency, a passion, an expectation of future invading-blessing so to speak.
There was a love for what's really so, and practical, and helpful.. an incredible exuberant excitement with each of em.. a red-hot-zeal about what they had and about spreading it far and wide. And it seemed like every time they gathered together, there was such holy-rush (not enough words to describe it..), a ginormous-J O Y, a exceptional excellent celebration that didn't just terminate upon themselves. Unpuffed-up, unselfish, unstop-able, they were and are! And there was praying for one another's felt-needs and for other needs. It wasn't like a dry-drudgery work or boring duty to em--'Man, you forgot to say your prayers today!' No, no. it was like they enjoyed getting real upwards and with others - a kinda transparency that popular politicians talk about, but rarely live. And there was a sweet communion; it was such a big deal to em. Yes, there was meaningful fellowshipping together and it was prioritized by all. Let me say it was so important to them.
There was an effective building-up of peeps, an encouragement, an anointed-heart-to-heart ministry-impact.. an on-goin' training and equipping of people to go apply what they were learning, to go do great society-changing things out where they lived.. and around all types of other people where they worked. It was practical teaching from the Scriptures that wasn't outta-whack contextually or in another way. Nope, it was healthy non-religious, unspooky, non-boring kinda teaching where all the people would respond with, 'Yeah (in Hebrew perhaps), that just makes sense and will help. It will work in a good way!'
What are you even talkin' about here, Kurt? Well, if you could explain it in your own words just using the Bible alone.. that's the Church! Not a nice lookin' expensive building; it's a living organism of sorts and God had and still has a plan for it. You know how so called pious men can add so much unnecessary self-serving junk to what they think it's about (and too many leaders have added..), but you go ahead and try to explain it in your own words after checkin' it out in God's Book alone. From the heart, doesn't need to be a perfect explanation. But are you.. or have you experienced this?
"Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person's need was met. They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved." Acts 2:44-47 msg facebook.com/shareJesus
