In Acts 10 the Apostle Peter was called by God to put aside the Jewish purity laws which had distinguished Jews from everyone else for fifteen hundred years! Why did God so abruptly discard such an important part of Jewish identity? What was to be gained? Nothing but the entire world. Join us as we unpack God's amazing strategy to redeem mankind as the church goes global.
In this sermon we consider what it means for Christ to be the stumbling stone of those who reject Him, & the cornerstone of those who are joined to Him by faith. Though God desires all to be saved & come to the knowledge of the truth, He is not thwarted by those who reject His Gospel. We find encouragement however in the reality that God has taken we who once were not His people, & made us a new creation in Christ. In 1 Peter 2:7-10 we begin to see just how new our identity in Jesus really is.
