Cornelius – A Devout Man


In Acts 10:1-48, Luke records the conversion of the centurion Cornelius. He is described as being a “devout man” (10:2) and to not leave us empty, Luke give evidence of Cornelius’ devotion saying, “who feared God with all his household, gave alms generously to the people, and prayed continually to God.”

Cornelius was so devoted to God that he didn’t hide it.

Are you devoted to God? Could someone say that you are a devoted man or a devoted woman? Well, the proof’s in the puddin’. Your life is the evidence that either proves your devotion or condemns you for not being devoted.

Are you instructing your family to fear God? Are you reaching out to your friends to share the gospel with them? Are you sacrificially giving to others? Are you continually praying to God? If you didn’t answer “yes” to all of these questions then friend you need to seriously consider your devotion to God.

If you’re reading this then it’s not too late to change… you can start today. Today you can instruct your family about God. Today you can reach out to a hurting heart and give them the hope of Jesus. Today you can give to someone in need. Today you can pray to God. Today you can start down the road of devotion to God.

If you need some more help getting on the right path just ask me… I’m here for you.
