What God has made clean

Passage: Acts 10

Speaker: Meredith Gudger-Raines

Series: Current

Category: Discipleship

Keywords: calling, courage, discipleship, faith

God orchestrates a meeting between Peter, devoted disciple, and Cornelius, a man earnest in his faith, but a Gentile. Peter has always obeyed the laws of his faith, and so does not associate with Gentiles. When God gives him a vision and a command, "Do not call unclean that which I have made clean," Peter follows God's call. He breaks the rules of his tradition to live out the calling of God. Where might we be called, even against the rules? Who is God calling us to love, even though our faith traditions tell us not to?
