Read. Acts 5:12-16
12 The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. They would come together regularly at Solomon’s Porch. 13 No one from outside the church dared to join them, even though the people spoke highly of them.14 Indeed, more and more believers in the Lord, large numbers of both men and women, were added to the church. 15 As a result, they would even bring the sick out into the main streets and lay them on cots and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow could fall on some of them as he passed by. 16 Even large numbers of persons from towns around Jerusalem would gather, bringing the sick and those harassed by unclean spirits. Everyone was healed.
Reflect. Here we get another summary of community life in the early church. In Acts 4:32-37 we learned that the church community is marked by unity; today, we learn that the community is also marked by the signs and wonders of the apostles. Even though the community of Jesus followers is expanding, at this moment, it seems that ministry leadership is still centered around the 12 apostles who are continuing the spirit filled ministry of Jesus.
