Hello This is a Test

Acts 10:9-16
9 The next day as Cornelius’s messengers were nearing the town, Peter went up on the flat roof to pray. It was about noon, 10 and he was hungry. But while a meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw the sky open, and something like a large sheet was let down by its four corners. 12 In the sheet were all sorts of animals, reptiles, and birds. 13 Then a voice said to him, “Get up, Peter; kill and eat them.”
14 “No, Lord,” Peter declared. “I have never eaten anything that our Jewish laws have declared impure and unclean.”
15 But the voice spoke again: “Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean.” 16 The same vision was repeated three times. Then the sheet was suddenly pulled up to heaven.


10:12 All kinds of animals and reptiles and birds would include both clean and unclean animals. Jewish law forbade the consumption of unclean animals (see Lev. 11:2–47).
10:13 The command from Jesus to kill and eat made no sense to Peter, since it would have violated Jewish food laws. Verse 15 is the key: God was overturning the old clean/unclean distinctions and dietary laws in general, along with all other “ceremonial” laws in the Mosaic covenant (including laws about sacrifices, festivals and special days, and circumcision). Nothing like this was to get in the way of fellowship with Gentiles, as Galatians 2 also shows.


  • In verse 13, once again, we see Peter having these great moments of faith followed up by moments of faithlessness. He has times where he gets it and other moments when he just doesn't. We should be so thankful for Peter because he gives us hope that God will do the same for us. He has so much patience with with Peter... and he will do the same for you. How many times have you been slow to catch on or learn something God was trying to teach you? How thankful are you that God is so patient with us?

  • We should constantly examine our lives to see if who we are and what we think and do lines up with who God is and what He has laid out in His Word. He is our example and authority. When we have a disagreement between something we feel or think and God's Word, HE SHOULD WIN! If there is a discrepancy, it's on OUR end! Do you hold to any platforms or beliefs or causes that directly go against what is taught in Scripture or what God has designed as His best? Where are you out of line? 

Prayer Topics:

  • That you would be grateful for God's patience. 
  • That you would make sure you submit to God's best and design in every are of your life. 

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory! 

1. Who is Jesus? I believe Jesus is God because Jesus said He is God and proved it by rising from the dead and appearing to His disciples, His brother James, 500 others at one time, and Paul.
