“Everyone Who Believes” ( Acts 10: 43, NIV ) by Carley Evans

Peter testifies,”But God shows me that I should not call any man impure or unclean.” (Acts 10:28) Cornelius testifies, “Suddenly a man in shining clothes stands before me and says, ‘Cornelius, God hears your prayer and remembers your gifts to the poor.” (Acts 10:31) God tells Cornelius to send for Peter; and Peter comes to a man — he once considered impure and unclean — in obedience to God’s call.

Peter testifies, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear Him and do what is right.” (Acts 10:34) Peter tells us, “Everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His Name.” (Acts 10:43)

“The gift of the Holy Spirit is poured out even on the Gentiles.” (Acts 10:45) Therefore Peter says, “Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 10:47)

“Therefore,” commands Jesus, “go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:19)
