Preparing for May 14

May 14, 2017  

Story: Acts 15:1-18                   (p. 1009, Pew Bible)

Sermon: “What Is The Nature Of The Church?”

Focus: Grace

Reflection: What Matters Most?

Today we hear how the first leaders of the church struggled with balancing what was really important. Suddenly they were welcoming people from all sorts of backgrounds and traditions, and trying to bring them under all the old rules too. It was causing a rift; it was causing a deal of unrest. So, they did what they could: they sought wisdom from the apostles and elders and they prayed for God’s guidance. The answer was simple, we are saved not by what we do or say, but only by the grace of Jesus. How we can learn from this? As you prepare for worship, reflect on how God’s grace has enabled you and ask again for the grace you need, when you need it.
