Something Missing

PuzzleActs 10 begins to explain how the church learned that Gentiles were also to be included in God’s plan of salvation.

This chapter starts by telling us about a soldier named Cornelius. Verse 2 says, “He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.”

One might think that Cornelius would be in good standing with God. However, this man–along with every other “good” man or woman who ever lived—needed Jesus.

So God sent Cornelius to the apostle Peter, and here is what Peter did—“So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ…” (Acts 10:48).

Let us never forget this all-important truth—everybody needs Jesus!
