Pastor Dave's Thoughts. . .
Read Acts 11 today.
This chapter includes Peter's explanation of why he went to the house of a Gentile. On one hand, Peter received the message that it was okay to go. One the other, Cornelius had received the message to seek Peter. God was bringing together a person with the Good News about Jesus Christ and a person who needed to hear the Good News. Both had to be willing to respond to a nudge from God.
Are you a person who needs to hear the Good News today? Perhaps this post is a nudge from God for you. Will you seek out someone who knows, who will sit down with you, who will share what he/she already has with you?
Are you a person who already knows the Good News? Perhaps this post is a nudge from God for you. Are you ready to respond to the person who needs to connect with God today? Are you prepared to share what you already have with someone who needs it?
Acts 11:11-14 NLT
"Just then three men who had been sent from Caesarea arrived at the house where we were staying.  The Holy Spirit told me to go with them and not to worry that they were Gentiles. These six brothers here accompanied me, and we soon entered the home of the man who had sent for us.  He told us how an angel had appeared to him in his home and had told him, 'Send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter.  He will tell you how you and everyone in your household can be saved!'
