Pastor Gary explains how Peter and the new believers in The Way had to follow God’s will in ways they weren’t used to. Sometimes we need to hear something more than once before it can get through to us.
Reading: Acts 11:1-18
And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as it had upon us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ If then God gave them the same gift that he gave us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could hinder God?” When they heard this, they were silenced. And they praised God, saying, “Then God has given even to the Gentiles the repentance that leads to life.”Acts 11:15-18
