Simplicity

Happy Pentecost Sunday!

lol (Laugh Out Loud)

I know it’s Thursday and we were to start reading Acts on Pentecost Sunday. I made a simple mistake. I somehow wrote Easter down on April 18, not 16, and counted the days to Pentecost Sunday instead of looking up the date. Lesson learned!

Acts 2:46, “And continuing daily with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, . . .” Modern English Version

What is “simplicity of heart?” The New International Version says, “glad and sincere hearts.”

Glad and sincere hearts. The fellowship, oneness and sharing enjoyed in the early church are Fruits of the Spirit. Joy is to be the mood of the believer (see Acts 16:34 note).”

“Filled with joy. The consistent consequence of conversion, regardless of circumstances. . . .”

New International Version Study Bible Notes on Acts 2:46 and 16:34

I refuse to lose the joy of my salvation over a simple mistake!
