Yesterday, we considered the actions of the Roman centurion Cornelius and his diligence in following instructions from a superior. Peter was the same way. An angel also gave him instructions, which had Peter going to the home of Cornelius and when the apostle arrived, he said,
“Therefore I came without objection as soon as I was sent for. I ask, then, for what reason have you sent for me?” (Acts 10:29).
While the Lord had to work with Peter to persuade him to go to the home of a Gentile, he finally went, but did not know why he was to go there, although having received the Great Commission from the Lord Jesus Christ, Peter should have figured things out.
However, he did not. The same probably happens to us also. We do what the Lord says, but we do not always know why He wanted it done.
Let us keep obeying Him, for in time we will see the reason even as Peter eventually did.
