: TRUTH DELIVERED

For God, who was at work in Peter as an apostle to the circumcised, was also at work in me as an apostle to the Gentiles. James, Cephas and John, those esteemed as pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the circumcised.

– Galatians 2:8-9 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Sometimes gifted people who God brings into our churches threaten us. How do we respond? Do we try to suppress them in an attempt to maintain the status quo, or are we willing to recognize a fresh gift of grace that God is bringing to the community? The answer to that question could determine the role that community plays in the larger purposes of God.
