Believers Sharing in All Things

Will we ever have this among Christians again? Such unity, such love, sharing everything we have with other believers in need. None of them lacked anything! That is the power of true love! And that is what God blesses! And He blesses with spiritual riches. It's not about material blessings.
Yes He blesses us with enough for every day, but believers are not promised a luxurious life (take up your cross comes to mind). That's why the poor are so blessed...God blesses them to be rich in FAITH and with many off-spring and He chose them to be heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him.

In those days the Christians were going through much persecution and it seems that's the only time when we as Christians will truly love and live like the early church, when under intense persecution.
 Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?
~James 2:5 NKJV
Yet He sets the poor on high, far from affliction,
And makes their families like a flock.
~Psalm 107:41
