When Peter goes to the house of Cornelius, he says something pretty exciting to him: "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or to visit anyone of another nation, but God has shown me that I should not call any person profane or unclean" (Acts 10:28). Peter makes clear that this is not just about unclean animals. It applies to people that God has redeemed. Do we see other Christians as really brothers and sisters, part of a select people and chosen nation (1 Peter 2:9)? Through the work of the Holy Spirit and the shed blood of His Son, God has made from the many nations, Jew and Gentile alike, one people for His own.
Enjoy the fellowship of God’s people this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as we worship together at the First Christian Church in Yates Center on the corner of Main and Washington.
