(Sunday Service resources)
We get the second half of Acts 10 this week. Last week we saw how two separate people got visions - the apostle Peter and some Roman bloke named Cornelius. They get to meet up this week.
Here is an animated version of the story told by people with fun English accents.
We’ve been hearing an awful lot about the apostle Peter recently. Here is a fun clip that talks about who he is, telling his story from the very beginning. You might even remember some of it from StAKs Online last year.
Cornelius and his friends were some of the first Gentiles (non-Jews) to become Christians. God likes it when we turn our lives around and get to know him.
1 Corinthians 6:11
11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Last Week’s Verse
15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
This reading is yet another reminder that God loves people of all nations - it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from.
This will be a fun way to pray for the church in other countries. This link features a list of countries on a giant wheel. Spin it and pray for the country that comes up. You can make sure you get a different country by “eliminating” the one you just prayed for.
Have fun. Pray lots.
