Acts 15:7-9 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)

After much talking about it, Peter stood up. He said, `Men and brothers, you know what happened in the first days. God chose me to tell the good news to those who are not Jews. They believed.

God knows what is in a person's heart. He proved that they believed. He gave them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us.

God made no difference between them and us. He made their hearts clean when they believed.

Acts 15:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. He did not discriminate between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith.
