I remember watching the movie “Apollo 13” and that dramatic moment when the explosion occurs. One astronaut speaks into his radio those brief words that are so full of meaning and emotion – “Houston, we have a problem.”
In Acts chapter 15 the early church has a problem that threatens to tear it apart. The way in which the early church dealt with this problem is very instructive for us today. They did it together. They did it according to Scripture. And they did it as godly leaders applied God’s Word to their specific situation.
Sometimes today we still need a “Systems Check” to see if we are in line with God’s Word or if we too have a problem. Thankfully, in Christ every problem is just another opportunity to see God at work!
