Luke: The Great Collaboration - Brian Becker

The Great Commandment
The Great Commission
The Great Collaboration

While faith should be personal, it was never meant to be private.

Teamwork

Acts 2:42-47 (TPT)
Every believer was faithfully devoted to following the teachings of the apostles. Their hearts were mutually linked to one another, sharing communion and coming together regularly for prayer.

Acts 2:42-47 (TPT)
A deep sense of holy awe swept over everyone, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. All the believers were in fellowship as one body, and they shared with one another whatever they had.

Acts 2:42-47 (TPT)
Out of generosity they even sold their assets to distribute the proceeds to those who were in need among them. Daily they met together in the temple courts and in one another’s homes to celebrate communion. They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility.

Acts 2:42-47 (TPT)
They were continually filled with praises to God, enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved.


LOVE. GO. TOGETHER.

2 Corinthians 13:14 (ESV)
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

Acts 2:42 (TPS)
Every believer was faithfully devoted...

Acts 2:47 (TPT)

Individually capable.
Collectively unbelievable.
