Word Wednesday .::167

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Acts 15:19 NIV

“It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God."

The gospel is simple, but not easy, because of the surrender part. In other words, its hard enough for people to throw down there pride and accept God's forgiveness, so why would we as a church want to make it any more difficult...but we do, sometimes. We make it difficult when assume of the role of the Holy Spirit in people's lives, instead showing them how to listen to God, Himself. It's ludicrous for us to complicate the gospel for people, instead of SIMPLY bringing them to Jesus.

What's your Word?
