I am not much of a chef but when I do cook for our family I know the right ingredients are key to a good meal. My first step is always to make sure I have the right ingredients (box of macaroni, butter, milk, cheese packet).
The same is true in our spiritual life. Having the right ingredients is key to our walk with Christ.
As you read through the book of Acts you find the right ingredients to be . . .
Word of God
It didn’t matter what place or situation you found the early church in these three ingredients were always apart of the equation:
Gathering Community – Jesus, Word of God and Prayer (Acts 1,2)
Miraculous healing – Jesus, Word of God and prayer (Acts 3)
Persecution – Jesus, Word of God and Prayer (Acts 4)
These ingredients must be a part of our everyday life in order for our walk with Christ to be all that God has designed for it to be. What are some ways you make sure these ingredients are a part of your everyday life?
