Whoever Believes in Him Will Receive Remission of Sins – Acts 10:1-11:18

In our study today, we see how God prepares and then directs his willing servant Peter to do what would have otherwise been unthinkable for this righteous Jew – enter the home of a Roman centurion with God’s message of salvation through faith in Jesus.  That God was opening the door of salvation to Gentiles without requiring them to first convert to Judaism was a shocking revelation to these early Jewish believers.  However, Peter came to see that “God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34) so that he boldly preached Jesus’ death and resurrection to Cornelius and his family, assuring them that “whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43).  As Cornelius and others in his home receive Peter’s preaching, “the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word” (Acts 10:44 NKJV).  This momentous event marks a pivotal moment in God’s work to transition from the old dispensation of the Law to the new, current, dispensation of grace. Pastor Kevin explains how this account also answers fundamental questions about repentance, salvation, our ability to seek God, and the deity of Jesus.
