Does it end there?

So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:41,42, ESV

I’m sure most of you have read those verses in the context of being foundational to local church assemblies. However, Shawn asks does it end there?

That’s a good question. Why is it so easy to stop after those two verses? What do we find when we continue?

And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2:43-47, ESV

Something to think about and discuss.
