Emphasis

There are three points of emphasis in this LIST:

1) The NUMERICAL INCREASE adds emphasis by revealing the effect of the Holy Spirit′s outpouring.

2) The CENTER POINT SUMMARY allows us to sense the awe which everyone was feeling.

3) The LIST (CONJUNCTIONS) device urges the reader to slow down, savor what is being stated. In this case, I suggest that the Holy Spirit is asking the reader to compare their own life with what is listed here.

As with other lists, there is no preferential treatment to items in a list. Therefore, fellowship is no more important than the breaking of bread (communion).
