Acts 10:9-13

About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds.13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”

One response to “Acts 10:9-13

  1. Their diet was one of the main ways that the Jews were distinct and set apart from the Gentiles. For God to speak to Peter in this way was a clear sign that He was breaking down the barriers and making them one people in Christ.

    It makes me wonder what is it that I am holding onto that I think makes me religiously set apart and a “Christian”, when in reality it is just my own legalism.
