Missionaries (4)

At first, God’s plan of salvation was only for the Jews. But after Jesus died and arose, God wanted His salvation to be for both Jews and non-Jews. God spoke to Peter in a dream and told him he should tell the Good News to non-Jews, too.
Then Peter went to see a non-Jew named Cornelius and told him about Jesus. Peter said he had seen Jesus’ miracles and His resurrection from the dead. Then God sent His Holy Spirit on Cornelius and the people who were listening to Peter.
In verses 47-48a Peter said, “‘How can anyone object to these people being baptized in water? They have received the Holy Spirit the same as we did!’ So Peter told them to baptize Cornelius and his relatives and friends in the name of Jesus Christ.”
Before that time, Peter had only preached to Jews. Now he preached to non-Jews, too. Maybe you have a friend who needs to know about Jesus. Share Jesus with that person today!
