Read: Acts 14:1-41
1) Even after becoming believers in Christ, we tend to have times when we feel we must earn our salvation just as the early Jewish converts did in this chapter. In what ways do you see yourself trying to earn your salvation?
2) T/F Based on Peter’s response in verses 7-11, we are required to keep the law.
3) In verse 29, the letter written by the apostles to the church in Antioch urged the believers there to refrain from eating food sacrificed to idols. Keeping in mind that the Bible cannot contradict itself, read 1 Corinthians 10:25-32. Why do you believe the apostles asked the people of Antioch to remain abstinent from food sacrificed to idols?
“For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay no greater burden on you than these few requirements: You must abstain from eating food offered to idols, from consuming blood or the meat of strangled animals, and from sexual immorality. If you do this, you will do well.”
Acts 14:28-29 (NLT)
