WE NEED A BRAND-NEW CHRISTMAS!

ACTS 10

We need a brand-new Christmas, right his very minute…

Jesus as the Savior, Christians involved in it!

(Parody of “We Need a Little Christmas” by Jerry Herman)

  • There is no question that Christmas is not the same this year! I think that’s a good thing! We need a wake-up call! We need, in a new sense, a brand-new Christmas.
  • Luke 2:10-11, Luke 2:29-32 – The Birth of Jesus for the Gentile too.
  • The Birth of Jesus was for UNSAVED people too, not just us!
  • Therefore, a brand-new Christmas for us is a Christmas which makes the Gospel available to unsaved people!
  • In Acts 10, Peter got the wake up call which brought the Gentiles into the church as equal members.

A NEW APPROACH – Acts 10:1-8

  • To wake a very bias church up to their mission, God had a devout, unsaved Gentile reach out! He used the supernatural!
  • The whole Covid19 and national unrest is making it people cry out even if we cannot hear them!

A NEW AWARENESS – Acts 10:9-16

  • Our group in our color, in our socio-economical status level. Ghandi
  • “They’ll do their own little church thing and I’ll do mine!”

A NEW ASSIGNMENT – Acts 10:17-23

  • Vs. 23 – There were 6 more witnesses – Acts 11:12

A NEW ACKNOWLEDGEMENT – Acts 10:24-35

  • Vss. 28-29
  • 34-35 – God will get them the Gospel – Acts 11:12-14

A NEW (TO THEM) ANNOUNCEMENT – Acts 10:36-43

  • They were ready to hear the Gospel.
  • Peter was ready to preach a clear Gospel Message

NEW ADEHERENTS – Acts 10:44-48

  • They believed before Peter finished

A NEW ACTIVITY – Acts 10:44-48

  • The visitation of the Holy Spirit with the same result of Speaking languages was proof that they had believed.
  • Today, the Spirit enters us, the moment we trust Christ.
  • The command was be baptized!
