The Enthusiastic Early Church

Passage: Acts 2:42-47, Romans 12:1-13, Matthew 28:16-20

In the early church, Easter was celebrated every week—so much had changed with Christ’s resurrection that Sunday, the first day of the week, became the new Sabbath. “Christ is risen. He is risen indeed!” That meant in deed, not just in spirit or symbolically, but in action, in history, in the here and now. New life, and new triumph life over death, was the new reality. Not just one day in spring, or even a season—but for a lifetime.
