Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Salvation Reaches Out 8/23/19

Dear River Reach Family,

Opening his mouth, Peter said:
 “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, 35 but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him.

Acts 10:34-35

God loves every human being. He demonstrated His love by giving His Son to die for us to redeem us from our sin (Romans 5:8; John 3:16). The proof of God’s love for us did not stop at the cross. His relentless love continues to pursue sinners and draw them to faith in Jesus Christ. Since the moment Jesus died for us on the cross, He has been drawing all people to himself (John 12:32). The history of the early church records for us the expansion of God’s love in saving first Jews (Acts 2) then Samaritans (Acts 8:5) and this Sunday we will watch as Peter opens the door of the Gospel to the Gentiles through a Roman Centurion named Cornelius (Acts 10). Thankfully God is still reaching out to all peoples and drawing individuals to Himself in salvation!
