Edifier du Jour-Acts 5:12-16(NASB)
12 At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were taking place among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solomon's portico. 13 But none of the rest dared to associate with them; however, the people held them in high esteem. 14 And all the more believers in the Lord, multitudes of men and women, were constantly added to their number, 15 to such an extent that they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them. 16 Also the people from the cities in the vicinity of Jerusalem were coming together, bringing people who were sick or afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all being healed.
The early church wasn't a bunch of first-century yuppies; they were a blue-collar bunch. However, they were following God and God was able to use them. As we start to become part of the power structure, we can get to playing to the powerful when we need to be playing to God. If we do so, we can see some of the power that the early church saw.
