Preached by Rod Benner (00:46)
The first Christians were confronted with idea of taking the gospel outside of the Jewish community. Today, this seems like an odd problem because the gospel has been preached and delivered to all nations and all people around the world. Yet Peter was the first apostle to bring the gospel message to a Gentile audience. A Gentiles was any person that wasn’t a Jew and all of the first Christians were Jews. God amazed and even confused the first disciples by declaring and showing that the gospel was meant not only for the Jews but also for all men and women. As they did, we too are to take the gospel to men and women who are on the outside of our normal community comforts. Jesus meant for the gospel to go out into the world.
