Believe and Have No Need

hands-250Reading in Acts 4:32-37, the believers became of one heart and mind. It is apparent that they were filled with the Holy Spirit as they shared everything they had and powerfully testified to the resurrection of Jesus.

In today’s passage, the believers were in no need as they pooled their resources. Those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need (V35).

There was a profound change in the disciples’ mode of living. God’s grace provided all they needed to satisfy their aspirations in this world. This day with You God, we can take note and look forward to some amazing changes for us because the Holy Spirit is still at work. We ask today Lord for solutions to the issues we face at work and within our homes. As we tap into this great resource called the Holy Spirit, help us to be of one heart and mind to spread Your Good News. Amen!
