Acts 2:42

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. [KJV]

Daniel’s boss asked him to write some letters for their company. These letters were very important and highly technical. Daniel did not want to make any mistakes, so as a wise officer, he asked for all the other previous successful similar letters and used them as a guide. Daniel ended up writing excellent letters that gained him more respect in the organization.

One effective way to do something that has successfully been done before is to follow the example of successful ones. This is not cluelessness but wisdom.

If you are to lead any congregation of God's people, it is best to follow the example of the first successful congregation led by the apostles of Christ. This church had four major things that they regularly did.

Today’s Bible text shows that the first church congregation continued STEADFASTLY in:

1) The Apostles’ doctrine 2) Fellowship 3) Breaking of bread 4) Prayers.

Jesus gave His Apostles the awesome responsibility of leading His church. They received their template directly from the Lord Himself, and it would be wise to follow their example in leading any local church assembly. Subsequently, we shall examine the doctrine of the apostles.

As you go into today, remember that God has given you examples in His word for all kinds of experiences you will face in life. God's word contains the precepts that will guide you in every area of life.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for giving me examples to follow in my path to the fullness of your will. I pray you help me always walk in this wisdom. Amen.
