The Apostle Peter’s sermon in Acts 10 contains a powerful message and one that is relevant today. First, he asserts that God does not show favoritism but instead accepts every nation and people group who fears the Lord and seeks to do what is right.
Second, he validates the message sent first to the covenant people that Jesus Christ is the good news of peace, and the Lord of all. Third, Peter confirms the ministry and legacy of John the Baptist as one who preached the meaning of the incarnation, that God became human, and anointed Jesus as the Christ, one filled with the Holy Spirit and given the power to heal all forms of sickness and to confront the adversary of God, thereby overcoming evil.
Peter presents his identity as a bonified witness of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ and as one himself who is chosen by God to tell the story of redemptive love. And therefore, entrusted with the responsibility of preaching the good news gospel to the people of every age and generation, that Jesus Christ lives and is Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
“All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”
