I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SERVE JESUS

 

IF YOU HAVE NEVER READ THE STORIES ABOUT PETER AND CORNELIUS OR PAUL AND THE BELIEVING JEWS, YOU SHOULD.  THIS SHOWS HOW COMMITTED THEY WERE TO JESUS AND HOW JESUS USED THEM.  WE ALL NEED TO BE THIS COMMITTED.  LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THEM.



FIRST, YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT PETER WAS A JEW AND DID NOT ASSOCIATE WITH ANY OTHER NATIONALITY.  IN FACT, IT WAS UNLAWFUL FOR HIM TO DO SO.  SEE WHAT PETER TOLD CORNELIUS AND HIS FAMILY WHEN HE STARTED MINISTERING TO THEM. (ACTS 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.)  JESUS SENT PETER TO CORNELIUS' HOUSE TO MINISTER TO THEM AND TO SHOW PETER THAT THE GENTILES WERE NOW BEING TAUGHT ABOUT HIM.



PAUL WAS SENT TO THE BELIEVING JEWS EVEN THOUGH, AT FIRST, HE PERSECUTED THEM.  HE COMPLETELY CHANGED WHEN JESUS APPEARED TO HIM ON THE DAMASCUS ROAD.  THIS NEXT VERSE WILL SHOW THE LOVE BETWEEN PAUL AND THOSE HE MINISTERED TO.  THEY WERE CRYING WHEN THEY TOLD HIM NOT TO GO UP TO JERUSALEM.  PAUL LOVED THEM SO MUCH HE SAID THEIR PLEAS WERE BREAKING HIS HEART (ACTS 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.)



WE ALL SHOULD HAVE PETER'S AND PAUL'S COMMITMENT TO SERVING JESUS, NO MATTER WHAT THE COST.  WILL YOU TRUST HIM TODAY?



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
