Are We “Getting the Message”?

getting-the-messageWhen Cornelius greets Peter at his door in Acts 10, he manifests the spirit that leads to profitable hearing and study of the Word.  He declares, “Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us” (Acts 10:33).  Sadly, if many supposed Christians told the truth, they would admit, “Now we are all here in the presence of mankind to hear everything that meets a felt need, maintains our comfort zone, and confirms our preexisting opinions.””

–Daniel Doriani, Getting the Message (p9).
