10-12-2017 Being “Religious” Without Jesus — Cornelius

“There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always” (Acts 10:1-2 NKJV). This was a deeply-religious family man, whose prayers and contributions would have caused many churches to have voted him full membership. BUT, he was missing one important thing. God had chosen him to hear what he was missing in his religion – Jesus Christ. Peter was sent to tell him “words by which you and all your household will be saved” (Acts 11:14 NKJV), and “commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord” (Acts 10:48 NKJV). It seems being “religious” is not enough for salvation without Jesus Christ.
