Prayer: Gracious God we thank you for your gift of grace. We know we do not deserve it, and that we did nothing to earn it. We are grateful. Help us tell others about your wonderful love. Amen.
Reading: Acts 11:1-18 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: As I read the text for today I can see a little bit of some “Christians”. These Christians are ones who faith is restrictive to the select people of their choosing. That makes me sad. Can they not see that God’s love is for all? Do they need to have a vision from God for them to understand? I am grateful for the vision that Paul had, and his ability to tell others about spreading God’s love to others.
