When God wants to make a difference, he will use a person with an open heart. This openness to God allows God to work through them. God used a man named Cornelius who had an open heart to bring forgiveness, salvation and eternal life to to all the non-Jewish people. He used Cornelius to open the heart of a man named Peter! Cornelius was a devout and godly man who consistently was generous and prayed to God. These are keys to a life open to God. The open heart of Cornelius opened the door for God’s love to spread to the nations.
