Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Acts chapter 10:27-33:

V27-28:  Finding a large number of non-Jews gathered, Peter shows he has understood and accepted what God is saying to him – he must no longer hold to the Jewish laws about avoiding contact with Gentiles, nor call anyone “common” or unclean before God because of race or background. So, Paul would write later Galatians 3:28, but here God is teaching this lesson to Peter, though his prime ministry is to be to the Jews and Jewish believers.( Galatians 2:8.)

V29:  So, Peter has come to Cornelius, as God has directed him. He asks the centurion why he has sent for him.

V30-32:  Cornelius tells him all that has happened, the vision he was given, and how God’s messenger (which is what angels are, of course ) told him to send to Joppa for Peter.

V33:  So, he sent, and Peter has come to him. Now all in the house are gathered to hear what Peter has to tell them from God. He already anticipates a clear and important message from the Lord, and is eager that all those he has gathered should also hear it. Here clearly is a heart God has prepared for the gospel.
