Christian Living: Acts 15 Day 3

July 11, 2008 Leave a comment

v. 22: Send important news with many delegates, not just one or two.

v. 26: Highlight people’s sacrifices to a cause when you place them at the front of the crowd.

vv. 36-41: Paul and Barnabas disagreed so strongly that they parted company.  This means that even sincere Christians can argue and fail to come to consensus.  Sometimes the right thing to do is break working ties for a period of time.  I wonder, did they ever get back together to serve?  The only positive reference to Barnabas outside of Acts that I can find in Paul’s letters is 1 Corinthians 9:6, and even here Paul is a bit cranky with his readers.
