To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 10.1–23 on July 1, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The Lord gave Peter a vision that he might learn that the Lord had removed the distinctions between clean and unclean food, and between clean and unclean people, that He now accepts all people who accept Him. Peter thought on that message, although he did not yet see the part about men. In the meantime, someone showed up at the house where he was,

Now while Peter wondered within himself what this vision which he had seen meant, behold, the men who had been sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate. And they called and asked whether Simon, whose surname was Peter, was lodging there (Acts 10.17–18). 

The men had arrived to bring Peter to a Gentile that Peter might preach the Good News to that Gentile. While Peter thought on God’s message, He sent a message to Peter that he might take a message to another man.
