Scripture Text: Acts 2:42-47
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.
44 All the believers were together and had everything in common.
45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.
46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
47 Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Reading the Map--A Visualized Goal--Of the Church
Illustration: Have you ever put a jigsaw puzzle together? The secret, of course, to putting together a thousand-piece puzzle is to first get a look at the picture you're trying "assemble" with the pieces.
Without "visualizing the goal" it's going to be virtually impossible to put together the puzzle.
Illustration: Have you ever tried to travel across the country without a map? I know some of you ladies are probably elbowing your husband right now, reminding him of how he seems to take off and travel without knowing for sure where he's going. Actually, it's not a smart idea to head off somewhere until you know which direction you're supposed to go.
