What is a food you prefer not to eat?

Bible Study and Group Discussion
Read Acts 10:1-8.
Acts of the Apostles 10:1-8 NLT

1. The angel highlighted two practices of Cornelius as being received or noticed by God. What are they? (vs. 2-4)
2. What stands out to you about Cornelius’ response to the angel?
3. What practice are you doing or would you be open to trying that might be affirmed by God?
Acts of the Apostles 10:9-33 NLT

4. What do the experiences of Cornelius and Peter have in common?
5. What’s the significance of verse 28 for the early church and us today?
6. What has hindered you from developing relationships with those who are different from you? What step can you take to overcome it?
Acts of the Apostles 10:34-48 NLT

7. What words and phrases in this passage indicate who God wants to receive the message of Jesus?
8. What signs showed evidence the Holy Spirit fell on those who believed? What was their next step?
9. What simple steps taken by Peter or Cornelius would you consider taking to experience God’s power or His voice?
Spiritual Practice
Spiritual Practices help us experience the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives. They’re meant to be more than one-time actions, becoming a natural part of our lives.

Who do you spend time with who’s different from you? (examples: beliefs, background, stage in life, race, etc.). Ask God to show you who He wants you to get to know better and what He wants you to share with them.
Memory Verse
For Christ Himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in His own body on the cross, He broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.
~ Ephesians 2:14 (NLT)
Prepare for Next Sunday
Sunday, November 29, we’ll conclude the series titled Church Empowered. To prepare, read Acts 12:1-25.
Acts of the Apostles 12:1-25 NLT
