Daily Reading – Nehemiah 10 / Acts 15:28-41
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Acts 15:39-40 And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus; And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Paul and Barnabas could not agree on what to do next. Their disagreement was so harsh; they decided it would be better to go in different ways. Later we find all of them reconciled their differences for the cause of Christ. Even in their disagreement, God used both teams to spread the good news of Salvation.
Even good people can disagree on how ministry should be done. One may not like the music, the order of service, or even various types of ministries. That doesn’t make either way wrong. If ministry is done with the right heart, God can use them all. Remember, in the verses before the disagreement, they agreed on how a person is saved.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Can we all agree that getting the
gospel message out is the most important?
