You are nowhere near good until you are being described as "thoroughly good."
Cornelius of Caesarea is one man to look up to. He was a man of good principle. He was virtuous. He brisked with invigorating personality. He was wealthy man (riches didn't distract him) who had servants and devout soldiers at his beck and call. Above all, He was brought to God's altar by his deeds.
The man named Cornelius was different from the other Jews.
Interestingly, God put Peter in his life to guide him in the path of righteousness, tutor him on more Biblical insights and in turn be a blessing and a helper to Peter's ministry.
Acts 10:1-3 "There was a man named Cornelius who lived in Caesarea, captain of the Italian Guard stationed there. He was a thoroughly good man. He had led everyone in his house to live worshipfully before God, was always helping people in need, and had the habit of prayer. One day about three o'clock in the afternoon he had a vision. An angel of God, as real as his next-door neighbour, came in and said, "Cornelius."
How good are you? Are you a complete package just like Cornelius? Here we go! We have a role model who had it all.
God is searching painstakingly for thoroughly good people to reveal his word to. It may be you He's been bending over backward to reach out to.
Think about it. Are you thoroughly good?
Have a Good day.
