Daily Reading for Sunday May 9, 2021
Reading 1, Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48
25 and as Peter reached the house Cornelius went out to meet him, fell at his feet and did him reverence.
26 But Peter helped him up. ‘Stand up,’ he said, ‘ after all, I am only a man!’
34 Then Peter addressed them, ‘I now really understand’, he said, ‘that God has no favourites,
35 but that anybody of any nationality who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.
44 While Peter was still speaking the Holy Spirit came down on all the listeners.
45 Jewish believers who had accompanied Peter were all astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit should be poured out on gentiles too,
46 since they could hear them speaking strange languages and proclaiming the greatness of God. Peter himself then said,
47 ‘Could anyone refuse the water of baptism to these people, now they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?’
48 He then gave orders for them to be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ. Afterwards they begged him to stay on for some days.
