The Power of Community (3 of 4)
Series: What Difference Does It Make?
Pastor Steve Redden
Acts 2-4

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING

LET'S GET IT STARTED
Acts 2

The Question: What difference does it make?

The Answer: The difference it makes is discovered in the difference we make.

WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN…
Acts 2:42-47 • Acts 4:32-36

1. We make time and space for each other.

2. We live in unity with each other.
Matthew 5:43-48 • John 13:35 • John 17:20-23 • Galatians 3:26-29 • Ephesians 2:11-22

3. We extend generosity to each other.
Proverbs 3:27-28 • Acts 5:1-11 • Acts 6:1-4 • 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15

It's voluntary, not compulsory.

- Generosity doesn't mean equality.
