Scripture - Acts 15

Observation: The believers were inviting people from all sorts of backgrounds to follow Jesus, not just the Jewish people. They had to come together and decide what it would look like to be obedient to God with their actions and life. Together they decided that it was best to invite people to follow God as believers, not just as rule followers. There are certainly guidelines and the Christian way of life, but that flows out of First loving and following God.

Application: What might it look like for you to let your love and relationship with a God direct the way you live today?

Prayer: God, may my life be lived in obedience to you, not to just a set of rules, but may I live changed because of our relationship. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
