“If God gave to them the same gift He gave to us after we put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, how could I stand against God?”
- Acts 11:17 (NLV)
It was shocking to believe that Jesus' message was for both Jews and Gentiles. This was life-changing, and as the news spread, many came to faith. It was contagious, and people wanted to share about Jesus with others around them.
Today the same is true, God's Word is for everyone. His promises are for anyone who takes that step of faith and believes. When our life has been radically changed, we long to share our story with others.
Pray for people in your life who need to hear the good news Jesus offers.
