Acts 10 Summary - He Commanded Us To Preach

Verses

  • 1+ (See v2,4,9) When the Lord did these great things, people had been praying so much.
  • 10+ (See v28) "You know how that it is an unlawful thing..."
  • 36+ The Word Which God Sent
  • 44+ Baptism Was "Commanded"

Meaning

v42
And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God [to be] the Judge of quick and dead.
The other day, I was walking by a man who was outside. I had tried to preach the gospel to him before, and I think he acted like he agreed with it, but wouldn't pay attention to do anything about it. I prayed about whether I should preach the gospel to him or not.

I saw a sign on a telephone pole for a lost puppy, and it said, "reward". That sign meant so much to me. I thought of the story of the little lost lamb, and I thought of the promise of a reward from the Lord.

Application

I went ahead and gently told the man "the shortest gospel" (from Acts 16:31,) even though he didn't seem to be listening.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.
