Acts 10:1-8 NKJV
[1] There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, [2] a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. [3] About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, "Cornelius!" [4] And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, "What is it, lord?" So he said to him, "Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God. [5] Now send men to Joppa, and send for Simon whose surname is Peter. [6] He is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea. He will tell you what you must do." [7] And when the angel who spoke to him had departed, Cornelius called two of his household servants and a devout soldier from among those who waited on him continually. [8] So when he had explained all these things to them, he sent them to Joppa.

Cornelius was a very popular name in that time.

Acts 10:2 NKJV
[2] a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always.

Cornelius was a devout religious man, but lost.

The fear of the Lord will govern our homes. We will fear what we bring our homes because of the fear of the Lord.

There is no conflict in serving God any your country.

Acts 13:22 NKJV
[22] And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.'

If all it took to get into heaven was to be a good guy, then Cornelius would have no worries. That’s not the case though.

If Cornelius didn’t need to be saved, then why would he need to send for Peter?

Religious but lost!

1 Corinthians 2:15-16 NKJV
[15] But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. [16] For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

Despicable Me.

Romans 3:10 NKJV
[10] As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one;

1. Our Character.
Romans 3:10-12 NKJV
[10] As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; [11] There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. [12] They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one."


2. Our Conversation
Romans 3:13-14 NKJV
[13] "Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit"; "The poison of asps is under their lips"; [14] "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."

The devil knows our name, but calls us by our sins. God knows our sins but calls us by our names.

3. Our Conduct
Romans 3:15-17 NKJV
[15] "Their feet are swift to shed blood; [16] Destruction and misery are in their ways; [17] And the way of peace they have not known."

“Pain lead me to my greatness, my greatness lead me to my destruction.” - Darryl Strawberry 

“I didn’t become a man until I met Jesus. When I met Jesus, I became a man.” - Darryl Strawberry 

“People may be finished with, but God is never finished with you.” - Darryl Strawberry 

“God is always going to use people to help people.” Darryl Strawberry 

Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
[5] Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. [6] Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

“God loved me in my brokenness” - Darryl Strawberry 

“God said to me, how dare you not forgive him when I forgave you.” Darryl Strawberry 

7 things you may have thought were in the Bible, but are not:
1. The apple in the garden.
2. The 3 wise men.
3. A whale swallowed Jonah.
4. The saying, “money is the root of all evil.”
5. The saying, “God works in mysterious ways.”
6. The saying, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
7. The saying, “God helps those that helps themselves.”

Romans 3:21-22 NLT
[21] But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. [22] We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.

The Gospel is a bright light in a dark place.

Despite our sin, God never stopped loving us.

Three Words That Can Change Your Life: Justification, Redemption, Propitiation 

1. Justification

God has both pardoned me and changed my relationship status.

God has changed your spiritual status.

God has removed your sins.

Hebrews 8:12 NLT
[12] And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins."

Justification is not only speaking of what God has taken from you, it is also referring to what has been put in its place.

God transferred His righteousness on to you.

2. Redemption
Jesus paid the price for us and set us free.

You have to want to change. 

Do you not think that Christ can break the cycle of sin in your family?

3. Propitiation
“To appease the wrath of.”

At the cross, the judge took the judgement.

Romans 3:27-28 NLT
[27] Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. [28] So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.

We are made right with God through faith, not through the law.

Philippians 3:8 NLT
[8] Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ

That is your old life, your own righteousness, even your best efforts - worthless when compared to what Christ did for you!
