thought for the day

Acts 10:9-16

Peter’s vision of meat from heaven

The voice spoke to him a second time.’Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.’

Yes the Jews were given laws to keep themselves pure and distinct from others but the law itself could not save them. Let us not be so caught up in laws that we miss God’s redeeming work of making all things pure. Once those of us from Gentile backgrounds would have been regarded by God’s people as impure and unclean. Christ has redeemed us and made us clean. Let us not restrict God’s work of redemption and restoration today with a list of rules into which grace cannot be extended.
