Squandering opportunities

Every day” in Jerusalem the first Christians met. Their circumstances were unusual. The city was full of feast participants, and the focus turned from Pentecost to sins lost at the Cross. At the response to the first gospel sermon, a community was formed, and as a community they devoted themselves to each other. Away from work and home responsibilities, they were free to develop this fellowship intensely.

We have a similar opportunity, though we squander much of our time in selfish pursuits. We may not be free of work and home like the Jerusalem saints were in those first days, but in no time in history does man have as much free time as today. We choose, however, to occupy it with activities that pander to our interests, rather than spend time with our Christian family.
