In our study to define and understand a Disciple, we have come to learn that a disciple is a follower of Christ, and one who believes and obeys Christ. In today's study, I want us to understand that a disciple is one who lives in community with other believers. The word "community" can both be attractive to us and repulsive to us. We long for the benefits of community but we resist the demands that community makes. Our scripture passage in Acts 2 will show us what this means to us.
It’s my prayer that as we look into our text and get a glimpse of the communal life and spirit of the early church that each of us will be encouraged to live passionately in community with other believers as we follow after Christ.
