Read. Acts 10:34-35
34 Peter said, “I really am learning that God doesn’t show partiality to one group of people over another. 35 Rather, in every nation, whoever worships him and does what is right is acceptable to him.
Reflect. God led Peter to the home of Cornelius. By all accounts of this world, Peter and Cornelius should have been enemies. Peter was a poor Jewish man. Cornelius was a Roman centurion. As such Cornelius was a Roman military commander. Additionally, the story in Acts 10 shows us that Cornelius had wealth. Cornelius represented the empire to Peter, the same empire that was often hostile to the Jews. Additionally, regardless of Cornelius’s status with the Roman Imperial Army, he was a Gentile. Good Jews did not associate with Gentiles. From all outward appearances, Peter and Cornelius should not be associated together.
