Peter travels to Caesarea to meet with Cornelius. We see:

  • Cornelius’s eager reception of Peter
  • His eagerness to hear the Gospel

Cornelius had his whole household prepared for Peter’s arrival. His enthusiasm demonstrates his true desire to hear God’s Word and to serve Him, which we would do well to imitate. Peter’s humility in refusing the worship Cornelius erroneously offered him is also exemplary in a world where so many use religion to glorify themselves.
