Body of Christ

Acts 4:32
The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common.

The followers of Jesus were transformed. They had been changed. They were not attached to their possessions but willingly shared all they had so that no one in their community was in need. It was not about amassing wealth. It was not about consuming and taking but about giving and receiving. It was about loving God and loving neighbor. This was the way of the first Christians. How can I take this message to heart? How can I live in this way?
