The Jerusalem Council

June 16, 2013  — 

Continuing in Acts, we focused on a debate that arose in the early Church over the question of how we are saved and saw how the Church resolved that question by affirming that our salvation is contingent on nothing but the grace of God poured out through the sacrifice of Jesus and sealed by the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is by grace we have been saved. Therefore, the call to every one of us is, “Come as you are, not as you should be.”

Scripture: Acts 15
