Breaking through barriers

Acts 11:18 NASB
When they heard this,
they quieted down and glorified God,
saying, “Well then, God has granted
to the Gentiles also
the repentance that leads to life.”

Devotional

Breaking through racial and cultural barriers is never easy.

Thankfully, God’s Spirit doesn’t let us settle comfortably into our prejudices. Instead, we are challenged, led, and pushed to break through racial hatred and cultural ignorance.

Let’s be the kind of people who rejoice and praise God as every barrier dividing people falls.
Let’s press on until the triumphant promise of the Gospel is fulfilled: “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female. For you are all Christians — you are one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).

In doing this, we anticipate the incredible chorus of heaven that praises God with folks from every language, tribe, people, and nation (Revelation 7:9-11).

Prayer suggestions

▪︎Ask God to bless all those everywhere who are trying to cross cultural, linguistic, and nationalistic barriers to share the grace of Jesus with those who do not know Him.
▪︎Ask God to help them know that they are bringing Him joy.
