Verse of the Day, July 19, 2020
Acts 15:11 KJV “But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”
Far too often men tempt the ALMIGHTY. They do this by placing a yoke on the neck of would-be disciples. These same yokes that they themselves aren’t even able to bear. Once upon a time, there was much disputation in the church.
This was when Peter rose up and declared GOD made a choice. The choice was that through Peter the nations or gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. Therefore, they were commanded not to place a difference between the tribes of Judah and the gentiles.
The gentiles also can purify their hearts by faith. So we that believe the grace of the LORD Jesus CHRIST will save us. We must also believe it will save the gentiles.
