Verse
“So why are you now challenging God by burdening the Gentile believers with a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors were able to bear?” ‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭15:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Insight
Old traditions, especially legalistic ways to sanctify oneself, are hard to erase with the new grace of Christ.

Action
Where am I inheriting and harboring old legalism versus finding freedom in Christ's grace?
