From today’s reading...
This account satisfied them, and they gave glory to God, saying, ‘God has clearly granted to the gentiles too the repentance that leads to life.’” Acts 11:18
The early Jewish converts mistakenly believed they were still bound by the 613 Jewish Mitzvot (Commandments), including circumcision and dietary laws.
Peter addressed that head-on today as he explained the message God sent to him when he was in Jaffa.
It’s not as though Jesus did not explain this to them within the last year or two, for today we read in John 10:16, “‘And there are other sheep I have that are not of this fold, and I must lead these too. They too will listen to my voice, and there will be only one flock, one shepherd.’”
Jesus is the Savior to all, and He wants all of us to help one another...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
Market like you mean it. Now go sell something.
