Jesus was crucified at the third hour of the day. The sun went dark three hours later at noon and stayed dark until He died at the ninth hour. Half the time was clear and half was unclear. As though a time of clarity was followed by mystery, we find a spiritual message that really comes to the forefront in light of the conversions of Saul of Tarsus and Cornelius of Italy. Astounding parallels and amazing correlations between those men's conversions and even between the very hours that were associated with these men's salvation and Christ's crucifixion reveal serious issues that all of us as believers must come to grips with. After the man who would become the Apostle to the Gentiles was saved by grace, the first Gentile was saved in the very next biblical chapter of the record of their conversions. But the details regarding their conversions reveal huge obstacles that God has to deal with in all of our lives as believers - religious traditions and inhibitions that pose a threat to the salvation of souls. Learn how God's work of the cross is easy to understand in some aspects, but unclear in others. His grace is more amazing than what any of us can truly appreciate!
