This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 20 From The book of Acts Is: Acts 11:1-18
The circumcision party (verse 2) was a conservative group in the
church at Jerusalem, who insisted on the necessity of circumcision for all. Cf.
15:1, 5. Peter had to explain to them his action with Cornelius.
1. What main point does Peter emphasize when he recounts his
meeting with Cornelius? Notice what Peter says about prayer; the vision and
action of God; the part played by the angel and the Holy Spirit. What was the result of God’s action upon (a)
the Gentiles (verses 14, 17, 18), (b) the circumcision party (verse 18), and
(c) Peter (verses 16,17)?
2. Compare 1:5 with 11:16, 17 and Eph. 3:6. Peter had to learn
that there was more truth in God’s word than he realized at first, and that he
must not keep up social, national and religious barriers when God has removed
them. Do you retain any such barriers
between yourself and someone else which ought to be removed?
