Read the sermon text: Acts 10:34-48
 
Read the sermon summary: It would be difficult to overstate the animosity between first century Jewish people and the Romans Gentiles. Their differences seemed insurmountable and irreconcilable. But God is in the business of reconciling the irreconcilable. In our text, we witness the conversion of Cornelius, a Roman centurion who is considered to be the first Gentile convert to Christianity. But not only is God reconciling the irreconcilable differences between a Gentile sinner and Himself, a holy God; He is also, in the process, beginning to reconcile the irreconcilable differences between Jews and Gentiles. How many of us view ourselves as unreachable? Or who are others we know that we view as unreachable? Or worse, are there people we know that we do not WANT God to save? Peter states that God shows no partiality: Can the same be said about us?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
This I Believe (The Creed)
Our Father everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty
Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Saviour
 
Chorus
I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in One
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus
 
Our judge and our defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You
Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high
 
I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord


I believe in life eternal
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the saints' communion
And in Your holy Church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus
