Acts 10:28 – And he said to them, “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 common or unclean.
Peter is talking to Cornelius along with his family and friends. Peter explains to the crowd about typical Jewish custom to not associate with people from another nation. However, Peter shares what God showed him in the vision that no person is to be viewed as common or unclean. This means no difference between gentile and Jew as God sees us.
God’s plan is for the Gospel to go to everyone and all people groups! What God has made clean of sin through the blood of Jesus I cannot call dirty. As a follower of Christ, I need to be involved in the mission of God to expand his glory amongst the nations. Once I realize this is God’s plan, then I have different ways that I can serve to spread the Gospel. I must not be deceived to doubt the work of Jesus to save us of our sin as God sees us as cleansed by the Lamb.
Thank you for your love, grace in mercy in sending Jesus to save me of my sins. Let the Spirit give me boldness to be part of your plan to share your love and gospel in a winsome way here and to the ends of the earth.
