Wanting Family and Friends to Hear the Word of God

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 10:24–48.
Cornelius sent for Peter, knowing that he would come and speak God’s word. Cornelius was not content to hear it alone, but look at what he did, “And the following day they entered Caesarea. Now Cornelius was waiting for them, and had called together his relatives and close friends” (Acts 10:24). His family and friends knew the kind of man he was and they knew that he had called them all together for a purpose, no doubt telling them of the vision of the angel. They loved Cornelius and wanted what he had. Therefore, they came when he called.
If people know what you stand for and why you live the way you do, and if they love you for it, then when an opportunity comes for them to hear the word of God, they will not resist. How then do you live? Do they know why you live that way?
