The Pattern of Service

The Pattern of Service

Luke, who traveled with Paul on his missionary journeys, wrote both Luke and Acts.  One of his big themes was “discipleship”.  In Acts 2:44-47 Luke described the pattern of service the early church lived out.  At the heart of the church’s community was serving each other in love.  This was typified by an attitude that if I have plenty I will help those in need.  What a great model for the church today in a very individualist culture!
