Today’s Reading | Acts 10
To “All” People
Why was it so difficult for Peter to go to Cornelius’ house? Why had God sent him there? While it may have been difficult for Peter, a Jew, to go into the house of a Gentile, it is clear that God wanted him to go. God wanted this household to hear the message of the gospel and gain eternal life. Although they feared God and sought to know Him, they had not yet heard the message of the gospel in order to receive eternal life. Although they were God fearing, they were not saved. When Peter arrived, he shared with them the message of salvation and all who heard were saved. Further, it was significant that Peter was the one that led Cornelius’ household to Christ. This was an important event in the life of the early church. God wanted the Apostles to realize that the message of the gospel was for all people, not just Jews. Although God had already told Peter, he had missed it.
