What can we learn from the way this situation was resolved?
15:1, 2—Exercise humility and patience. Rather than settling the issue themselves, Paul and Barnabas sought direction from Jehovah’s organization.
15:28, 29—Trust God’s organization. The congregation was confident that Jehovah would direct matters by means of his holy spirit and Christ Jesus.
16:4, 5—Obey. The congregations prospered when they followed the direction from the governing body.
