"Then Peter replied, 'I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism. In every nation he accepts those who fear him and do what is right.' …
Even as Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who were listening to the message. The Jewish believers who came with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles, too."
This event was a huge leap forward for the church. It was very clear to everyone that God intended salvation and the Holy Spirit to be available for Gentiles as well as Jews. This broke through the Jews' expectations in a huge way. When have you experienced a breakthrough in your own life, when God took things to a whole new level? Are you open to his doing that at any time?
