Chapter 15:23 and they sent this letter by them, “The apostles and the brethren who are elders, to the brethren in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia who are from the Gentiles, greetings.
Chapter 15:24 Since we have heard that some of our number to whom we gave no instruction have disturbed you with their words, unsettling your souls,
Chapter 15:25 it seemed good to us, having become of one mind, to select men to send to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
Chapter 15:26 men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Chapter 15:27 Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth.
Chapter 15:28 For it seem good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials:
Chapter 15:29 that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things you will do well. Farewell.”
This letter is about as simple as it gets for a Christian and it explains what we really have with our relationship with Christ: Freedom!!! God wants us to have a wonderful life and rely on him totally. We cannot live by the Law. In verse 29, the rules are simple. By putting our relationship with God first, everything else will take care of itself. What these verses are telling me is that, quit trying so hard and work on that personal intimate love relationship with Christ. That is what is really important!!!
