GodSpeak – Acts 10 – June 11-16

Acts 10

In our readings this week, we read of Cornelius the centurion and his conversion.  Through this story we are shown that the Gospel is for everyone – Jew and Greek alike.

Monday, June 11     Read Acts 10:1-23. The angel tells Cornelius to call for Peter. Why doesn’t the angel just share the Gospel with him and save Peter the trip? See 2 Corinthians 5:18-19.

Tuesday, June 12     Read Acts 10:24-48. After Cornelius falls down at Peter’s feet in reverence, Peter tells him to get up and says “I am only a man myself”. Why would Peter feel the need to make this distinction?

Wednesday, June 13     After reviewing Acts 10:1-48, Read Matthew 15:1-20. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees and teachers of the Law for breaking the command of God in order to fulfill their traditions. What, does Jesus say, makes a person “unclean”?

Thursday, June 14     After reviewing Acts 10:1-48, Read Leviticus 11. Read these rules god set forth for His people about what was “clean” and “unclean”. What was the point of all these rules?

Friday, June 15     After reviewing Acts 10:1-48, Read 1 Timothy 4:1-6. No longer are we bound to Leviticus 11. We are free to experience and enjoy all that God has for us. How are we to receive these gifts?

Saturday, June 16     After reviewing Acts 10:1-48, Read Hebrews 8:1-13. We are under the New Covenant that Christ has ushered us into. What are the marks of this New Covenant?
