11/10 – Peter Explains His Actions

Acts 11:4-14

This is Peter’ report of what happened at the house of Cornelius the Gentile. They Jews want an explanation for why He went in to a Gentiles house and ate with them.

Peter had done more than that – he had actually baptized them and accepted them into the new body of believers!

What impresses you about how Peter defends his actions?

How does he show that he was acting in good conscience in all that he did?

    In defending his actions Peter could have simply flaunted his Apostolic authority but instead he made it clear that God’s hands were at work in this process and the fact that the Holy Spirit fell on them proved that God’s stamp of approval was on this work towards the Gentiles.
