Acts 11:1–18

“But a second time the voice answered from heaven, ‘What God has made clean, you must not call profane.’” (Acts 11:9)

Peter’s vision on the roof challenged his faith to the core. He thought he had been doing the right thing, keeping kosher food laws and not eating what he believed to be ritually unclean. But God told him differently. For Peter this continued to be a struggle. He knew that God called all people and offered them new life, and yet it was difficult for him to let go of what he had been taught from the beginning. How easily are you able to give up things you have believed since childhood, because your faith experience tells you otherwise?
