Summary: Jesus extends salvation to all.
Introduction: In Chapter 8 of Acts, we find an Ethiopian trust Christ (a descendant of Ham.) In Chapter 9, Saul, later to be the Apostle Paul was saved (He was a Jew, a descendant of Shem). Now in chapter 10, we see a Roman saved - A Gentile, descendant of Japeth. In these three chapters, the beginning of the church age, God demonstrated GRACE to all Nations!
The very heartbeat of God is for the World to know Him.

Disclaimer: A man once told me that if it is true, it is not new. If it is new, it is not true. We all know there is nothing new under the sun. With that said, I glean ideas for my sermons from God’s Word, my own thoughts and work, and many other sources. Any similarity to my sermons and others, where credit is not given, is either coincidental, or an unintentional mistake on my part. As none of us have a corner on the wisdom and teaching of God’s Word, it is my desire that any of my outlines be an encouragement, a help, and hopefully a motivation for others to preach God’s Word clearly. Please feel free to use any portion of my sermons if they can be of help to you and your ministry. I purposely include a skeleton outline, and not my full text, for this purpose. It is all for His Glory.
