Preaching to the Gentiles

In verses 44-48, we read that many Gentiles are encouraged and become Christians as a result of Paul’s teaching.

Paul responds to the criticisms of the Jews in town by taking his message to a more receptive audience.


In verses 19-20, we read that some of the Christians limited their outreach to Jews, while others shared the Good News with Gentiles as well.

Salvation for All

In verses 44-48, we read that the Holy Spirit is poured out on Gentile believers.  This is a huge deal!

Now anyone can experience the gift of God’s Spirit, not just the Jews.

In verses 7-9, we learn that Paul and Peter strategized and focused their missions on different target populations.

It’s not our job to reach everyone.  It’s our job to serve someone effectively.
