Acts: Life In The Spirit
Acts 10:1-23

Every believer is a living telegram of God’s love and acceptance.

Let’s look at 4 observations that will help us understand how God meets the deepest needs of a person’s life.

I. Even Good People Need Jesus
To sum it up, Cornelius was a really good man. However, he did not yet know Jesus.

II. Even Godly Leaders Need to Adjust their Thinking
With God it is a heart issue, and Peter had to make a major adjustment in his thinking.

So, Godly leaders and indeed all believers sometimes need to adjust their thinking, and let God use them to accomplish His agenda.

III. God Wants Believers to Accept Others the Way He Does
In other words, Peter was saying, “I accept you because God has accepted you.”

The ground at the foot of the cross is level.

IV. Obedience Is the Appropriate Response to the Good News
When God speaks to us about going to see someone and sharing His love and acceptance with them, we need to purpose ahead of time that we will just do it!
