Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:42


2:42 And they continued steadfast - So their daily Church communion consisted in these four particulars: Hearing the word; Having all things common; Receiving the Lord's Supper; Prayer. Ye diff'rent sects, who all declare, Lo here is Christ, and Christ is there; Your stronger proofs divinely give, And show me where the Christians live!


People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:42


Ac 2:42 They continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine. In the things taught by the apostles. And fellowship. Contribution to the common fund and its distribution. In the breaking of bread. The Lord's supper. From this time it is observed as an ordinance of the church. In prayers. I think the prayers of the regular worship are meant. These four items are all features of the public church life.

    I thank God for such a wonderful gift,of using words to destroy the devil.We see in this scripture that the mouth is the one that we use to call upon the name of Jesus,and it is the same word that God created the earth,so just believe with heart and confess with your mouth and you will be saved because in your words thats where life is,so as your salvation so dont use your mouth to say evil things because it is the one you use to appreciate the works done by Jesus Christ.glory be to Jesus Christ
