What was so significant about Cornelius’ house in our Christian faith. First Cornelius was a gentile who God called to God’s plan of salvation and Cornelius responded to God’s call. Cornelius and Paul came from two different worlds. Cornelius was a wealthy Roman Centurian and Paul was a Jewish fisherman turned preacher. God showed Peter that Cornelius was worthy of God plan of salvation. In Acts 10:28 Peter explained to Corneilus that in the Jewish faith it’s unacceptable to visit or associate with Gentiles. God showed Peter that he should not call any man unpure or unclean. Then Peter went on to ask Cornelius why he sent for him. In Acts 28:30-332 Cornelius answered Four days ago, I was in prayer, and behold a man appeared to hiim in bright apparel. The man told Corneilius his prayer had been heard and answered in the sight of God. The man in bright apparel instructed Cornelius to send for Peter and bring him to his house. God showed both men how they needed each other. Cornelius needed Peter to share God’s plan of salvation for him in verse Acts 10:43. Peter says Jesus was who all the prophets bore witness to, Peter went on to say that through his name Jesus Christ that everyone that believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. While Peter spoke those words in Corneilus house the Holy Spirit came on all those who heard his message that fate day.
