Live Life Together

INTRODUCTION:

         • Jesus directs us to live life together


“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
       John 15:12

....You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
      Matthew 22:39

         • We often minimize or neglect the together part

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet
together...
      Hebrews 10:24


LIVING LIFE TOGETHER AS A CHURCH...


#1 BE IN AND UNDER GOD’S WORD TO LEARN


And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching...
       Acts 2:42

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
       Psalm 119:105


#2 BE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP FOR FELLOWSHIP


Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away.
       Proverbs 27:10

And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of
bread and the prayers.
       Acts 2:42


.... in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,
       Acts 2:46


#3 BE KNOWN AND KNOW EACH OTHERS NEEDS


And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their
possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.
       Acts 2:44-45

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
       Philippians 2:4
