GOD MAKES NO DISTINCTION
Bible Basis: Acts 15:1-12
Bible Truth: Luke claimed that the Jerusalem Council had power to change the law of Moses in order to make it congruent to God's action.
Memory Verse: "and God, which knowers the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did on to us; and put no difference between us and them, purify your hearts by faith" (Acts 15:8-9).
Lesson Aim: By The end of the lesson, we will: REVIEW the story of how the Jerusalem Council listened to Paul and Barnabas as they told of the signs and wonders God did among the Gentiles; REFLECT on how difficult it can be to reconcile law and God's action; and INITIATE process of discernment of God's will when the law and God's action appear to conflict.
