Love One Another!

I’ve been trying to imagine what the early church looked like as I read the Acts of the Apostles and the letters in the New Testament. The picture I get doesn’t look anything like the church we know today – but why? Have we improved the early model through the centuries, or have we lost some of the purpose of the early church by adding our structures and traditions? I don’t think there’s an answer that says everyone should be doing this or that, but I do believe we have to be following the early church by keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus and understanding how His love (Agape) impacts on the things we do and the way we think. John 13 v 34 says ” A new command I give you: (Agape) love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” Ian
