  Legalist Or Loyalist

JULY 16 & 17, 2022
Daily Reading – Neh. 9-10 / Acts 15:1-27


Acts 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.


     Any time a church adopts procedures to help keep order, someone calls them legalists. Typically, it is the person who does not like the rule. All churches have rules. You must be a member to vote. Only members may teach Sunday School. Etc. Yet no rule says you must do them to be saved. These rules help us loyal to order in church, not legalists to a law to be saved.
    It is not a new phenomenon. The apostles wrestled with these issues back at the founding of the church. Their conclusion should be ours as well. God clearly says in Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Faith in Christ alone saves, plus nothing.


Can we share the Gospel without adding new rules?


     On Sundays, we encourage you to attend your local church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then, when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
