Can you smell us yet?
Who is it that determines who is “impure” or “unclean”?
Are there people that I should stay away from?
“While talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.” – Acts 10:27-28
Peter had just been in a trance and he had a vision when he was called for and asked to speak to a bunch of dirty Gentiles like you and me.
His vision basically let him know that he, “should not call anyone impure or unclean” why is that?
Because of this meeting and because of this brave act of being around dirty folk like you and me, we have the Love of Jesus today!
Are there people that I am cautious of?
I find it hard to deal with people who are stuck. By that I mean stuck in an idea of black and white mentality where they are right and everyone else is wrong.
The people that are using some substitute pain reliever are usually easier to be around I guess because they are more open to Grace.
The idea that “God Loves You” is not just for the people who are exactly like me or you and if it was we wouldn’t have it only the Jewish people would.
No one is to be judged impure or unclean by me- NO ONE!
Because of Peter’s work with the dirty people like you and me billions of Lovers were created and the Good News of the Gospel came to all us smelly people!!
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
