The Written Plan

The church leaders came to a decision on the disagreements about circumcision, the other meaningless rituals, legalisms, and ceremonies that burdened the believers. In Acts 15:22-35, we see a letter written explaining how they had consulted with each other, prayed, and received direction from the Holy Spirit. They implemented the decision by communicating both in writing and by word of mouth.

The Devil tries to disrupt unity but there are ways to build up unity among believers. If you have a plan, you have a better shot at getting things done. Things seem to fall in place and you get a lot more done than you thought you could. God has given us a plan through His Son as shared at this link.

Lord, we are thankful for Your plan because it has simplified what is required from our own actions. Our part is not as difficult anymore because of our Redeemer. As laid out in today’s passage, the plan for salvation has been simplified and Christ has unified so we can overcome the disruptions the enemy tries to throw our way.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
