Do you feel like there is no hope for you just because of what others actions are towards you? Do you feel like a failure because you can not live up to others expectations? Sadly there are many that feel this way because of the laws of society that condemns a person for the way they live their lives. Like the old saying goes, walk a mile in another mans shoes and you will see where he came from. Lifestyles are only handed down from a generational parenthood that only reflects on the outside of a person to what we perceive them to be on the inside. Never judge a book by its cover.
The Gentiles were a people of a very pagan nation who were separate from the commonwealth of Israel. They had their own godly idols envisioned and crafted by the hands of man that they would bow down to and worship. The Gentiles were considered a heathen nation by the Jews and not worthy of those things of Gods Spirit according to their laws.
Peter was called of God to go and preach before this Gentile nation, but because of the traditions of the Jewish law he was bound by the law to not talk to other nations, but God showed him in a dream that what God made clean others should not despise. There were certain Gentiles that knew God and worshiped him in secret for fear of punishment from their own government, but called on God to send a witness to their nation to draw them all back to his grace and as many that heard the witness of Peter the Holy Spirit also fell on those Gentiles.
It truly does not matter who you are or where you come from as God has no boundaries when it comes to those he calls by his name who will heed his call and the diversity of his gifts given by the Holy Spirit are also boundless to all who are called into his ministry. There are different gifts, but only one purpose and that is that we are all drawn together as one body of Christ by the Holy Spirit working those gifts in us and through us to reach out to others through the name of Jesus. We are one in the Spirit, one in Christ lifting up and edifying one another no matter the nation you are from.
