The Acts of the Apostles gives us continual glimpses into the life of the earlier Christian community:
The churches throughout Judaea, Galilee and Samaria were now left in peace, building themselves up, living in the fear of the Lord, filled with the consolation of the Holy Spirit.
Living in peace, maturing as a Christian, reverence for the Lord, and consolation from the Holy Spirit. This all sounds good to me.
Peter visited one place after another and eventually came to the saints living in Lydda.
Regarding each other as saints? That would change a few things!
