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.
