Living Biblical Truth Together

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching…

Acts 2:42

Walking alongside others in our faith journey is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? The early church certainly thought so. They gathered around to soak in the apostles’ teachings like eager students around a campfire, absorbing stories that would shape their lives and communities. But why is digging into these teachings so vital for us today, especially as seekers and followers of God?

Let’s talk about the need for solid ground. As Paul tells Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, the Bible is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” It’s our go-to guide for life, helping us to stay on track and equipped for whatever comes our way. Imagine having such a powerful tool at our fingertips—why wouldn’t we want to make the most of it?

Looking at the early Christians, we see folks whose lives were completely turned around because they took the teachings to heart. It wasn’t just academic for them; it shaped who they were and how they acted daily. For us, this means sinking our roots deep into Scripture, letting it challenge and change us, bit by bit.

The apostles’ teachings, rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, formed the foundation of early Christian doctrine. These teachings emphasized salvation through faith, ethical living, and the importance of community practices like baptism and Communion. They also prepared believers for Jesus’ return and instructed them on maintaining unity and integrity within the church. These teachings are captured in the New Testament and guide Christian life and faith today.

British evangelist G. Campbell Morgan once said, “The reason why men do not look to the Church today is that she has destroyed her own influence by compromise.” In a world where truth often seems up for grabs, isn’t it refreshing to have the solid truth of the Bible to stand on?

For all of us Godseekers, correct and faithful Biblical truth isn’t just about growing ourselves. It’s about building a community that’s strong in the truth, supports growth, and can weather life’s storms together. By diving deep into the Bible, we know God better and understand how He wants us to live. This isn’t just hearing the Word; it’s about doing what it says.

This commitment to the Word also brings us together like nothing else can. As Ephesians 4:13 nudges us, we’re meant to grow into a unity of faith and knowledge, maturing together into a community that truly reflects Christ. And that unity? It’s about each of us bringing our unique selves to the table, united by our common love for God’s truth.

So, let’s ask ourselves: Are we letting the apostles’ teachings sink in? Do our gatherings show that we’re all in when it comes to chasing after God’s truth together? Let’s cheer each other on to listen and live out these truths daily.

So, how about it? Are we ready to let the apostles’ teachings deeply shape our lives and communities?


Heavenly Father, draw us closer to the heart of Your Word. Help us to commit to diving deep into the Scriptures. Transform us through Your teachings so that our community can truly reflect the vibrant spirit of the early church. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
