Acts 11: Standing Up


Soon after Peter had visited Cornelius word had spread. Some of the believers thought that Peter was wrong to share the gospel with the gentiles or even to eat with them. Peter had a choice to make. He could back down or he could stand up for his new friends in Christ.  Thankfully Peter stood up  for the gentiles.

A Step Deeper:Because Peter stood up many other people began to realize that the gospel was for everyone. Sometimes as a believer you will be called on to do the hard, but right thing. It may seem difficult or scary at the time, but standing up for the truth is always the right thing to do and it gives people an opportunity to accept or reject what God has done.
