Easter 2 – The resurrection of Jesus had changed everything, and the Spirit of Jesus had given the disciples a fresh insight into what it was all about. Those early Christians were a community enlivened by God's spirit. How do we look at this story? We are not being told to sell everything we own to support the poor, just because it was where God's spirit had led that particular community. Christianity is not a single ethical system with rules that tell you what to do in any circumstance. We are God's beloved, and his Spirit will lead us to which mandate from Scripture it would be best to follow for a particular circumstance. There are plenty to choose from. And, are we trying to do the "right thing" for those we serve, which can be a sign of self-centredness; or are we serving selflessly, with self-forgetfulness, in order to fully serve others and cooperate with God to change this old world into a new world?
Acts 4: 32-35
