Plum Creek Christian Church
What would a wealthy Roman military man and a Jewish fisherman have in common? Absolutely nothing it would seem. God had other plans. He used these very different men to accomplish his purpose. While the Roman Cornelius was praying, God spoke to him through a vision and told him to send for Peter the fisherman. In the meantime Peter was also in prayer when God told him to go and spread the gospel to Cornelius and his family. This was a completely new concept for Peter. Was God really willing to save people other than the Jews. God’s ways are not our ways. Thankfully, He wants everyone to be saved. Many people believe the only way to salvation is by being a good person. But even one sin separates us from God. However, we are not left hopeless. Ephesians 2:9-10 says, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” God simply asks us to believe in him. To learn more about this life-changing encounter with God read Acts chapter 10.
