First Reading
Acts 10:34-48
34  Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism
35  but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.
36  You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.
37  You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached--
38  how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.
39  We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree,
40  but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen.
41  He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen--by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
42  He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.
43  All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."
44  While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.
45  The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles.
46  For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said,
47  Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.
48  So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.

Sermon Scripture Reading
John 15:9-17
9  As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
10  If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
11  I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
12  My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
13  Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
14  You are my friends if you do what I command.
15  I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
17  This is my command: Love each other.

In Whom Do We Believe? The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.  From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
