“No Pressure, Pete …”
Acts 10: 33b: “Now then, we are all here present before God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord.” When you present yourself before God, what do you expect to hear from the one commanded by the Lord? Cornelius expected much, and he got much; up to and including the salvation of his house. In expectancy he had prayed for Peter and for this day long before it happened. In expectancy he had invited “many people.” (v. 27) To be honest, what do you expect this Sunday? Like Cornelius, according to your faith it will be unto you.
