Bible: Acts 15:7-11

15:7 After there had been much debate, 1  Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that some time ago 2  God chose 3  me to preach to the Gentiles so they would hear the message 4  of the gospel 5  and believe. 6  15:8 And God, who knows the heart, 7  has testified 8  to them by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, 9  15:9 and he made no distinction 10  between them and us, cleansing 11  their hearts by faith. 15:10 So now why are you putting God to the test 12  by placing on the neck of the disciples a yoke 13  that neither our ancestors 14  nor we have been able to bear? 15:11 On the contrary, we believe that we are saved through 15  the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they are.” 16
