There are certain people in the Word that give us great examples on HOW and WHY GOD moves on our behalf!
There is a man Cornelius in Acts 10 who gives us some keys that turned the head of God.
This man was a Roman centurion who literally stimulated God to the place of activating the supernatural. He was a man who loved God and had all of Jesus that he knew….BUT THERE IS ALWAYS MORE FOR THE HUNGRY!
Acts 10:1-8, In Caesarea there lived a Roman army officer named Cornelius, who was a captain of the Italian Regiment. 2 He was a devout, God-fearing man, as was everyone in his household. He gave generously to the poor and prayed regularly to God. 3 One afternoon about three o’clock, he had a vision in which he saw an angel of God coming toward him. “Cornelius!” the angel said. 4 Cornelius stared at him in terror. “What is it, sir?” he asked the angel. And the angel replied, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have been received by God as an offering! 5 Now send some men to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. 6 He is staying with Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.” 7 As soon as the angel was gone, Cornelius called two of his household servants and a devout soldier, one of his personal attendants. 8 He told them what had happened and sent them off to Joppa.
THIS MAN MOVED THE HAND OF GOD IN HIS LIFE, BY HIS LIFE!
He was DEVOUT – He lived what he believed. His faith was not just in words, but when you believe something, you live it!
He was God-fearing – He respected and honored Jesus with his life and family.
He gave money generously – He gave not because he had to, but when Jesus has your life He also has your wallet. Someone who does not give has not given their whole life to Jesus.
He prayed regularly – He had a relationship with Christ. He talked with God, and, HE HEARD HIM!
DOES YOUR LIFE MATCH YOUR CLAIM OF FAITH?
DO YOU RESPECT GOD?
ARE YOU A GIVER?
DO YOU PRAY?
These keys activated the hand of God to give Cornelius more than he could ever imagined….THE HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM!
