Cornelius (Acts 10) | Games

 

Cornelius (Acts 10)  - Games

 

This is a story of inclusivity. It’s a story about people who had always been treated as less getting to be a full part of God’s work. It’s a story that repeats itself in almost every generation and our modern day Cornelius and Peter may not be the people we expect.

Cornelius (Acts 10) | Craft 1

 

It’s easy to exclude people and it’s natural to have thought that the Jewish messiah came to just save the Jewish people, but God had a much bigger plan. For people on the edges like Cornelius that was huge. The party they had always been excluded from had flung wide the doors and they could finally enter. This little craft uses the idea of a door as the barrier that is now open. Cornelius (Acts 10) | Craft 1

Cornelius (Acts 10) | Story

 
Cornelius (Acts 10) | Story

Essential Teachers notes:
We may think this is a minor story but it’s one that every generation of the church has been challenged to live out. For Peter and the apostles it was totally logical that the Jewish messiah would be a message for the Jews. That God would include every man, woman and child into his great family irrespective of birth was totally revolutionary. So hard was it to imagine that the potential converts were quite literally speaking in tongues before Peter called for water to baptise.

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.
