When the others [among the Jewish disciples] heard [that the Holy Spirit came on Cornelius, along with his family and friends], they stopped objecting and began praising God. They said, "We can see that God has also given the Gentiles the privilege of repenting of their sins and receiving eternal life."
O Father, I am sorry your people have so often needed you to open our eyes to our need to fellowship people different from us. I thank you for the Holy Spirit, who has worked through history to tear down the barriers of race, nationality, and language to bring your people together. In this time of desperate need for us to end racial suspicion, division, and violence, I now ask that the Holy Spirit to lead us and make us all we need to be to bring all people together in Jesus. I pray this in Jesus' name and for his glory. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
Unstoppable! is written by Phil Ware.
