Welcome Church! We are here every Sunday to read the Bible, tell personal stories and pray together because when two or more are gathered.....In a non-judgemental down to earth format. God bless you every one!

This week is Acts chapter 11 Peter Explains His Actions

 The apostles and the believers throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him and said, “You went into the house of uncircumcised men and ate with them.”

 Starting from the beginning, Peter told them the whole story:  “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. I saw something like a large sheet being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came down to where I was.  I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles and birds.  Then I heard a voice telling me, ‘Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.’

Gentiles Are Accepted

  • Back in Judea, word reaches the apostles and Jewish followers of Jesus that Peter has been baptizing Gentiles. The horror!
  • Later, when Peter comes back into town, he has some 'splaining to do.
  • Peter tells them all about the vision and that God said unclean things are now a-okay.
  • He explains that it was God who let the Holy Spirit fall on the Gentiles while he was speaking. What was Peter supposed to do?
  • Stop God from giving out his gifts? Good luck with that.
  • The other apostles are speechless, but then they realize this is actually a great thing. God wants to save everyone.
