It's Day 50 and we're in Acts 15.Is the Bible an old dusty book? Nope - ". . . the Word of God is living and active. . ." (Hebrews 4:12). Dig into today expecting it to speak to you.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verses 25, 36-41 - In verse 25, they all come to agreement and everything is fine. In verses 36-41, we're told of a disagreement between Paul and Barnabas that cause them to break up their partnership. In other words, they were just like us: struggling to get along with each other.
- Verses 1-35 - This is a historic moment. Now that God has opened the door for Gentiles to be saved (in addition to Jews), there is a moment where they have to decide "how 'Jewish' does God expect these Gentiles to be?" (The answer: not very much.)
