In God’s Will

February 20, 2022 / Acts 11:1-18

How do you know it’s time for a change?

Evaluate the spiritual ingredients you are seeking to change.

Are you seeking God?

I WAS PRAYING. Acts 11:1-5a

Are you looking for a clearer understanding?

I SAW A VISION, an object coming down like a great sheet from the sky to me, and when I had fixed my gaze upon it I saw the four-footed animals and the wild beasts and the crawling creatures and the birds of the air. I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Arise, Peter, kill and eat.’ But I said, ‘By no means, Lord, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth.’ Acts 11:5b-8

Are you ready for a change of attitude?

BUT A VOICE FROM HEAVEN answered a second time, ‘What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.’ Acts 11:9-10

Are you alert to providence?

AT THAT MOMENT three men appeared before the house in which we were staying, having been sent to me from Caesarea. Acts 11:11

Are you open to new outreach?

THE SPIRIT TOLD ME TO GO WITH THEM WITHOUT MISGIVINGS. These six brethren also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. He reported to us how he had seen the angel standing in his house, and saying, ‘Send to Joppa, and have Peter brought here; and he shall speak words by which you will be saved.’ Acts 11:12-14

Are you looking for biblical parallels?

As I began to speak, THE HOLY SPIRIT FELL UPON THEM, JUST AS HE DID UPON US at the beginning. Acts 11:15

Are you thinking in spiritual terms?

I REMEMBERED THE WORD OF THE LORD, how he used to say, ‘John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ If God therefore gave to them the same gift as He gave to us after believing in Christ, WHO WAS I THAT I COULD STAND IN GOD’S WAY? Acts 11:16-17

Are you observing biblical results?

When THEY heard this, they quieted down, and GLORIFIED GOD, saying, ‘Well then, GOD HAS GRANTED to the Gentiles the REPENTANCE that leads to life.’ Acts 11:18
