July 9 – God The Cleanser
Daily Reading – 2 Chronicles 35-Ezra 1 / Acts 10:1-22
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Acts 10:15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
There’s a chorus we sing which says, “I shall not be, I shall not be moved.” The Chorus is saying that God’s Word is solid and that we should live by what it says. However, we need to know what God has really said, not what man has implied. We sometimes get so entrenched in our religion that we no longer really care if God said it or not, that’s just how we do it.
Peter didn’t eating certain foods he called common. God met him in a vision and said, “What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.” God had challenged Peter’s traditions. Sometimes the Bible will challenge our traditions as well. God said, He cleanses and washes away sin, yet sometimes we have trouble believing they’re gone from others, and from us.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
When God says it’s clean,
doesn’t that make it clean?
