Day 16 – Coact

Etymology – (“to compel, force,” c. 1400, from Latin coactare “constrain, force,” frequentative of cogere (past participle coactus) “to compel,” also “curdle, collect” (see cogent). Related: Coacted; coacting; coaction; coactive. “to act together,” c. 1600, from co- + act (v.). Related: Co-action; co-active; co-actor.)

Acts 4:32

32 The multitude of believers was one in heart and soul. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they owned.

Selah – Contemplate the power of believers coacting in unity together and being in one place and on one accord.  Imagine your life if everyone helps everyone else out and the lack others may struggle with, would begin to leave their lives all because others choose to fill that lack in the Kingdom.   “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.”

Wisdom Nugget – The unity of believers coacting reflects a ultimate shared sense of community and selflessness.  We are the hands and feet for our community and the coacting or the very force that helps to push out self-centeredness and things that cause disunity.
