Peter & Jerusalem Council

Acts 11:1-18

“Who was I that I could stand in God’s way?”
After sharing the gospel with Cornelius and his household, Peter was called to account by those who thought only those who followed Jewish customs could receive the gospel. Peter responded by explaining how God had shown him that the gospel was for Gentiles also, relating both what Jesus had told them when he was on earth, and also what God had shown him in vision and in action.
You may run into people in the church that you need to evangelize toward a fuller understanding that the gospel is for everyone. You will need to use Scripture and God’s work in your own life to proclaim that “Repent, believe, and be baptized” is the way, the only way for any and all to come to faith.
