Peter's meeting with Cornelius was one of the most significant effects in the history of the church. It is the moment the Gospel crossed from Jews to Gentiles. The passage has three lessons:
1. God shows no favouritism in salvation; no one is beyond God's grace. In Christ, the barrier dividing Jew from Gentile is destroyed. Do we show favouritism?
2. God shows no favouritism in judgement. Who then can stand before him?
3. Everyone who trusts in Christ will be saved, but there is no salvation outside Christ.
There are three questions for us?
1. Am I trusting in Christ for my salvation?
2. Am I guilty of favouritism?
3. Am I engaged with world mission?
