In case you thought the deal with the Roman Centurion Cornelius was a “one off”, Dr. Luke immediately introduces us to the reality of MORE gentiles (non-Jews) coming to believe in Jesus, in fact, "a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord” (Acts 11:21). Last Sunday we looked at the beginning of OUR inclusion in The People of God, this Sunday the church takes her true, Acts 1:8 form, in the Cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, metropolis of Antioch, and for the first time we are called “Christian”… the implications are profound! I’m looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday …and there are 3 people signed up to be baptized, so that’s particularly exciting! Don’t miss it! I’ll see you at 9 am or 11 am!
