The early church grew fast but
there were some growing pains. They struggled with whom should be accepted. Was
a person accepted by God through good works or by grace? They were trapped by
the meaningless rituals, legalisms, and ceremonies that burdens believers and
this provoked disunity.
The lesson is that we need not
get wrapped up in the meaningless but instead get wrapped up in the ONE
essential; acceptance of Jesus as Savior. We can overcome the enemy by
simplifying and unifying and Jesus does both for us. Enjoy today’s inspiring

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God be with
us, who can be against us? - Romans 8:31
