Hindrances?

Session 4.20 for May 13, 2011

Last week, we read about the story of an Ethiopian Eunuch who, despite the current religious sanctions, was accepted and baptized in the name of Christ.  For the early readers, inviting a Eunuch to join the Kingdom of God would have been a powerful statement about the inclusion of all people in the Kingdom.  In Acts 10:44-48, we see this statement taken even further as the Holy Spirit is evident among the Gentiles, a group of people who were not supposed to be part of the religious “in” crowd.”  Peter sees this stirring of the Spirit and accepts them, baptizing them in the name of Christ.  This passage reminds us that God works in surprising ways – calling and sending those who we would might deem “unclean.”
