April 3 Devotion: An Old Fashioned Church

An Old Fashioned Church

Acts 2:42-47:

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.


  1. Churches today are so different than past days.

  2. Churches have turned modern to please the crowd.

  3. Churches are more interested in entertainment.

  4. Churches need to get back to the old-time way.
