Peter preached to Cornelius and his family and friends. Acknowledging that the Lord accepts people from any nation, Peter then started preaching Jesus,

“The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all—that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10.36–38). 

Jesus went about doing good. Does that picture you? What is the focus of your life? Is your main goal to seek good for yourself or to seek it for others?
