May 18th – Breaking through our Cultural Barriers

Rev Alan Bing 19th May 2019

Rev Alan Bing preaches on the conversion of Cornelius, the Roman Centurion, and his family – the first gentile converts (Acts 11:1-17). Peter, like the other Jewish believers, had to overcome some strong cultural prejudices to reach out to the gentile population. God broke through those prejudices and enabled Peter to listen and obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit, We too need to recognise our unconscious cultural prejudices and be prepared to follow God’s leading to reach the world with the Gospel, even if it takes us outside our comfort zone.
