Acts 18:9-18; Psalm 47; John 16:20-23
Moving forward together
The force of Jesus’ commandment, “Love one another as I have loved you”, is seen in the way in which the apostles and elders in Jerusalem responded to the church in Antioch. By highlighting what the churches had in common rather than what divided them, they sought to find a way to move forward together. Rather than lay down a series of commands and edicts, they offered as much freedom as possible and focused on encouragement and unity. When faced with apparent division and disunity, we too should focus on what brings us together rather than on what separates us.
