The Story Matters

May 15, 2022    Rev. Dr. Mark Gooden

Peter is making a report to the Church at Jerusalem. What is the meaning of this? Gentiles accepting the word of God. What is going on here? Remember the leaders did not know about Ptere's vision. The Holy Spirit is expanding the mission that Jesus Promised. You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and all the world. The Holy Spirit is directing Peter, showing him what to do and where to go. Peter was faithfully obedient and listened or the Holy Spirit's direction. Is not God often pushing us to love people we never thought we could love, to minister to people we never imagined ministering to? Gentiles hear the Good News- Acts 1:8 just as Jesus promised.
