Acts 2:42-47 tells us the result of such devotion "to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayers" - the growth of the church, both in its spiritual and numerical sense.
The community of faith in Jerusalem lives a multifaceted witness, one not restricted to a single place or mode, which manifests itself in houses and in the temple. It benefits its members and earns the admiration of outsiders. Community exists not for its own sake, but to care for its most vulnerable members and to be a means by which God extends salvation to others.
It can be hard for some of us to commit to community, especially if we are guarded or prefer solitude. But community is God's desire for us - and a sign of mature faith, because at the end of the day, when we grow in our relationships with others, we're growing in our relationship with Him.
