Readings for the Week
May 9 - 16, 2021
Readings for Sunday, May 9:

Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48:
  Peter visits Cornelius and his family. God will favor anyone who acts uprightly,
Jews, and Gentiles alike.  He gave orders that all who believe should be baptized.

1 Jn 4:7-10:  Christians should love one another as God Himself is love.  A person without love does not know
God. Love is that God has sent His Son as an offering for sin.

Jn 15:9-17: 
Jesus admonishes His disciples to continue the love He has shown to them.  The keeping of the commandments will prove this.  “You are to love one another … it was I who chose you.”

Today’s Message:  Let us love one another as Christ has loved us by offering Himself for our sins.  His love
is to be revealed to all the world, as Peter himself taught.
