Exploding preconceptions

But the voice spoke [to Peter] again: “Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean.” Acts 10:15

The story of Cornelius is told in Act 10. Before Cornelius even believed in Christ God made it clear to Peter that He had plans to redeem Cornelius. God blew Peter’s preconceived ideas about how Christians are supposed to look and act out of the water. Peter had to get over his legalism and accept Cornelius into the family of God as a brother who had been made clean and righteous by the cross.

Lord, help me let go of false preconceptions.
