Call to Worship | 
1 Samuel 2:9

Confession of Faith | Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead, I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting.
Amen

Scripture Reading|  Acts 10:1-8, 30-33

 

10 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of what was known as the Italian Cohort, a devout man who feared God with all his household, gave alms generously to the people, and prayed continually to God. About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God come in and say to him, “Cornelius.” And he stared at him in terror and said, “What is it, Lord?” And he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have ascended as a memorial before God. And now send men to Joppa and bring one Simon who is called Peter. He is lodging with one Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea.” When the angel who spoke to him had departed, he called two of his servants and a devout soldier from among those who attended him, and having related everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.

 …..30And Cornelius said, “Four days ago, about this hour, I was praying in my house at the ninth hour, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing 31 and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your alms have been remembered before God. 32 Send therefore to Joppa and ask for Simon who is called Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.’ 33 So I sent for you at once, and you have been kind enough to come. Now therefore we are all here in the presence of God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord.”

 

 

Sermon | Cornelius’ Prayer

(sermon outline | study guide)

Sermon Series Title:Church Beginnings
Sermon Series Summary: From now until around Easter, we will be in the book of Acts, covering chapters 1-12. After the Ascension of Jesus Christ, we see the NT church being born by the power of the Holy Spirit. Through this series, we see the church being built, the kingdom going forth, and the gospel being proclaimed.

Summary
Our passage today is the setting of a very important event in redemptive history, Gentiles officially receiving the gospel and being part of the people of God. We see Cornelius, a Gentile God-fearer who has been seeking God. God answers his prayer and reveals to him the truth of Christ.

Sermon Quotes

“When the Italians came to a province on military service, they usually behaved like hungry wolves after prey; they generally had no more religion than animals, and they cared for integrity about as much as bandits.” -John Calvin

“Whenever the Word of God is set before us, we must remember that we are not dealing with a mortal man but that God is present and is calling us. From such respect for God arises the majesty of the Word and reverence in hearing it.” -John Calvin

 

Reflection Questions

1. As a Gentile, what does this passage mean to you?
