Read Acts 8:14-17

14 The apostles in Jerusalem heard that the people of Samaria had received the word of God, so they sent Peter and John to them. 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the believers that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For the Holy Spirit had not yet come down on any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

For the Holy Spirit to be received by the people from Samaria was a big deal; and it happened when Peter and John placed their hands on them.  When Peter and John connected physically with these people who would otherwise be considered rejected and outside of the household of God.


Lord teach me to reach out and show other people your love.
