Cornelius worshipped the true God. He encouraged his family and employees to do so too. So God was pleased with him.
Father, does it matter whether we are Romans, Samaritans or Jews as long as we sincerely search for You and be finally saved by Jesus Christ's death on the cross and resurrection for us? Does a person have to know You personally first before they can simply worship You? It did not appear to be so in Your being pleased with Cornelius. Please help me understand Your ways, I pray, because I have many friends who are worshipping You even though they might not have met You yet.
