When Peter came to Antioch, I told him face-to-face that he was wrong. He used to eat with Gentiles followers of the Lord, until James sent some Jewish followers. Peter was afraid of the Jews and soon stopped eating with the Gentiles. He and the other Jews hid their true feelings so well that even Barnabas was fooled. And when I saw that they were not really obeying the truth I corrected Peter and said:
Peter, you are a Jew, but you live like a Gentile. So how can you force Gentiles to live like Jews?
Have we Jews by birth, and are sinners like Gentiles. But we know God accepts only those who have faith in Jesus Christ. No one can please God by simply obeying the Law.
Like a swimmer gingerly testing the water temperature with one toe. Hope wondered what it would be like to be the coper. Then she realize she had no choice; She had to everything for Sam and, if she was dying, Hope would fight to the bitter end with her. Thinking of Sam dying made her chest throb with a nameless ache, but she knew she didn’t have time to get emotional. I was time for action. Medical action.
