Confirm the writing

Acts 15:27-29

27 我们派了犹大和西拉一同去,他们也会亲口述说这些事。 28 圣灵和我们都同意,不把别的重担加在你们身上,然而有几件事是重要的, 29 就是禁戒祭过偶像的食物、血、勒死的牲畜和淫乱。这些事你们若能保守自己不作,那就好了。祝你们平安!”

 27 Therefore we are sending Judas and Silas to confirm by word of mouth what we are writing.  28 It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements:  29 You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell.




Lessons Learn

When the apostles and elders linked themselves with the Holy Spirit, they were not attributing anything to themselves independently; it is like saying that the Holy Spirit was their leader and director, and what they were writing was decided by his dictation. When it says that the people put their trust in God and his servant Moses, faith is not torn in pieces as if it were given partly to God and partly to mortal man. God was the only author of their faith, and they put their trust in his minister; they could only trust God by believing the teaching Moses gave them.
