Daily Fountain Devotional 6 June 2022 Message
Peter, like any other Jew, had many problems, relating with the Gentiles (Gal. 2:11-14). God had to encounter Peter directly in a unique and radical way to deal with that problem (Acts. 10:9-23ff; 45-47) In yesterday’s reading, we saw the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost to empower the disciples to preach the good news of the kingdom of God.
After the personal encounter Peter had with the Holy Spirit, Peter became emboldened, and led by the Holy Spirit, visited the house of a notable gentile, Cornelius. Peter began to testify, “I now realise how true it is that God does not show favouritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.”
This shows that Peter had read about this loving nature of God to all mankind regardless of race, but did not believe or practise it in practical terms. The church is filled today with all forms of segregation or class distinction between the poor and rich, male and female, educated and illiterate, between races, tribes, caste systems, etc.
This ought not to be so. There should be a difference between the Church and the world in these matters. Genuine experience of salvation and infilling of the Holy Spirit breaks all social barriers. Are you born again?
PRAYER: Pray against all forms of social barriers in the church.
