Paul was chosen to be sent to the Gentiles, but it was Peter that opened the door that first time, in the home of Cornelius (Acts 10).

Peter did something that was "against his law" (Acts 10.28). He went to the home of the Gentile man in agreement with what the Spirit had told him (Acts 10.20). Upon arriving, there were many gathered to "listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us" (Acts 10.33). Because Peter spoke the words, these people obeyed and were "baptized (in water) in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ" (Acts 10.47-48).

We too are sent into the world to teach people what God desires for them to do. We are called to visit homes, and talk to people on the street, and lead people to Jesus at our businesses. There are all these people living in, and around, this marvelous community....let's take the good news of Christ to them so that, just like Cornelius, they and possibly their whole household, may come to know the power and glory of our King and Lord, Jesus Christ.

In Acts 11 Peter comes back to the church and tells his story....of how God had been at work. Who will have a story to tell at the end of this week?
