(The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for March 5 Is Acts 10: 1-48, the Golden Text being, Isaiah 45: 22, "Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." By NEWMAN CAMPBELL GRADUALLY i t - has been dawning: on Peter that God intends the new religion of Jesus to be preached to all men, not alone to the Jews. In today's lesgon he has the lesson driven home very forcibly, and convinces his fellow disciples that henceforth they must preach to Gentiles. In Caesarca there Hved a Roman captain or centurion named Cornelius. He was a very fine man who loved God and who was very charitable. One day, while Cornelius was at prayer he had a vision. An angel came to him and told him that God had blessed him because of his good works. He was told to send to Joppa for a man by the name of Peter, whose surname was Simon. He would find him, said the angel, in the house of a tanner whose name was Simon, who lived in a house by the side of the sea. When the vision was gone, Cornelius sent for two of his servants and one soldier who was very devout. He told them to go in all haste to Joppa and find Peter and bring him to Cornelius 1 house. In the meantime. Peter too had been having a vision. Peter had gone to the housetop to pray at a certain time, as was his custom, and he became very hungry, and fell asleep and dreamed. In his dream he saw a vessel let down from heaven with all manner of live beasts in it. A voice said, "Arise, Peter, slay and eat." But Peter objected, saying he never yet had eaten anything that -was unclean--according to the Jewish law. Then the voice said: "What God hath cleansed, that call thou not common," Peter was not at all sure what this vision meant, but he awakened to find Uiree men were seek-Copyright. 1939. "King .Fcamra Syndicate. Inc. ing him, and the voice that had spoken to him about the food again spoke and told him that he was to go with these men. So Peter went to them and they told him that Cornelius had had a vision and had been commanded to come Co Joppa for him, and he invited them to stay with him. The next day all journeyed to Caesarea to Cornelius* house. Cornelius told Peter about his vision and how he had been told to send for Peter, and then Peter began to realize what his own vision meant--that he was cllosen to preach to this Roman soldier and his household and friends. So Peter told them about Jesus, how He had gone about doing- good and preaching;, and had been crucified and-risen from the dead. And as he preached they were convinced and Peter baptized them and the Holy Ghost fell on them, even as it had on Peter and the other disciples. But when some of. his followers heard about this, they were displeased and censured Peter for living in the house and eating- at. . the table with these Romans. Then Peter told them about his housetop vision and what it meant, and how the Holy Ghost fell on these - Gentiles, and all were impressed with what Peter said, and glorified · God. In the week's reading, reference is again made to the story of-the man who fell among thieves and who was aided by the Samaritan, to show that, as Peter said, when preaching 1 to Cornelius and his friends, "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons." And further: "But in every nation he that fearest Him and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him." All this lesson refutes the claim of some that they or their nation is superior to any other. "Are we not God's children, all"? as the hynvn says. And should we not have respect and deal kindly and in a spirit of friendship with all ? If we truly are Christians we wUl do so. ruarv 25. held the The funeral service was following Tuesday. Mrs. Stouffer, 82 years old, had visited at the Thomas home and had a number of friends here.
