How Should We Remember?
What practices did the early Christians develop after the Spirit came at Pentecost? “They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Word, prayer, and fellowship (more about “the breaking of bread” below)—these are ways that God fuels health and strength in the Christian life, from the first days of the church, throughout history, and into the twenty-first century and beyond. And our own “habits of grace,” then, are the particular practices we create and develop in our own lives for accessing these three timeless channels.
