Key Verse: Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Acts 10:1-4 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian [a]Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave [b]alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. 3 About [c]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.
Cornelius’ Conversion Shows Us:
1. A Seeking Centurion. (Acts 10:1-2)
2. An Obedient Servant (Acts 10:9)
3. A Sovereign Savior (Acts 10:3)
