They responded diligently.
The Gentiles who heard the word of God responded in the coolest of ways. They got baptized and begged the other Christians to stick around. They wanted to know more. They wanted to learn this new faith. They wanted to figure out what it meant to follow Jesus. They were excited about it, passionate about it.
It’s easy, when you’ve had your faith for a while, to let that passion fade. It’s easy to lose sight of that hunger to know more. They jumped in and wanted to get out everything they could for this faith.
Are you eager for your faith? Are you passionately pursuing whatever you can to know Jesus more?
