Gathered

Acts 2

Introduction: Last week…Scattered. Primarily we spoke about the disciples and what they did or didn’t do when the shepherd was struck…This week I want to look at not only what the disciples did, but a whole community of believers who were missing their shepherded. What did they do? The gathered.

Before I look at text, I want to talk about why, potentially, people don’t come together.

Why individuals don’t gather?

 

Why individuals don’t gather in church context?

 

Why did they Gather in upper room?

They remembered what Jesus said as stated in Acts 1. Luke sets up Pentecost

 

What happens at Pentecost?

Conclusion

: We need to gather…especially when we’ve been scattered.

It’s the enemy’s intention to divide and isolate…and he will use any and every possible method!
