God shattered Peter’s mindset when he received a vision of God; Peter realized, “God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.”
As a result, Peter reached out to the gentile Cornelius, one whom it was illegal for Peter to talk to, and spoke the truth of Christ to him.
Peter changed his mindset toward “them.” What is your mindset toward “them,” “the others,” “the outsiders?”
The main text for this sermon is Acts 10:34-43. I had the opportunity to preach this sermon at the West Chester Church of the Nazarene on January 12, 2014, during the Sunday morning service.
I pray that the Holy Spirit challenges you as you listen and may God bless you.
