It's Day 41 and we're in Luke 17.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 5 - This is a cry we all need to be making regularly.

Your Comments and Questions:
- "Acts 11:14 - I assumed from Chapter 10 that Cornelius was already saved. If not, then were all Jews & Gentiles who were living for God according to what they knew at the time, now required to believe in Jesus to be saved? Were people, living in Jesus' time on earth, automatically bound to the new salvation stipulations?  Or did it depend on their nationality, location, age, etc?" - Acts 10 is a unique situation.  It is a testimony to a new open door for the gospel.  Up to this point, the gospel was only preached to Jews.  Peter and the apostles presumed that good news of Jesus was only good news for the Jews.  In Acts 10, God gives Peter this uncomfortable vision to point him toward the fact that the gospel was for Gentiles too.  Then, when Peter obeyed and preached to gospel to the Gentiles, God gave Peter a sign of His approval by allowing the Holy Spirit to come upon the Gentile believers.  See Acts 10:45.  Chapter 11 shows us that the Jewish believers were unhappy with what Peter had done, until he told them that the Holy Spirit came upon these Gentile believers, indicating God's blessing.  So the point is for all people, now including the Gentiles, to recognize what God had done in Christ and believe in Him so they might know Christ and receive the Holy Spirit.  Maybe the simplest way to put it would be: those who were truly of God under the old system would recognize Christ for who He was and eagerly embrace this new, deeper revelation.
