WHY THE APOSTLES TURNED THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
The apostles had the promise of the Father: the indwelling Spirit of Christ. They were sent with the power and authority of Christ who had risen from the dead; spoke the truth and offered themselves as living sacrifices to die for that truth.
"Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
THEY SERVED GOD INSTEAD OF MAMMON
The borrower is servant to the lender --so they owed no man anything but love. They never begged; because they trusted God for their provision. When they didn’t have a piece of silver, they would simply work within the providence of God.
