Acts 15:11

We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus.”

Insight- Peter made this simple, yet bold statement in response to some Jewish believers who had been trying to impose religious requirements on gentile converts. You can imagine that for early church Jewish believers this was a difficult concept to grasp! They had been taught that you had to impress God. But the good news is that we are all saved the same way, not because we have earned, but because of the grace of Jesus.

Prayer- Jesus, I thank you for how the Old Covenant was a beautiful foreshadow of the New Covenant relationship made available because of your great grace for all people. We can now boldly come to God because you provided access through the cross. I receive your free gift of grace today, I love you. Amen
