Seeing As God Sees (Lesson From God)

See as God sees

In Acts 10:11-16, Paul saw a vision where he was asked to kill and eat the animals certain animals. He rejected them and was corrected.

This vision opened Peter's eyes to what he should do. It made him follow the men Cornelius sent to his house.

By custom, a Jew should not associate with the Gentiles, but God helped Peter to see things in the best way– not to call any man unclean (Acts 10:28).

What if Peter didn't go?

The multitude in Cornelius' house wouldn't have been saved at that time.

Peter wouldn't have learnt a very wonderful lesson that God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). This helped him to grow.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has eradicated the era where only some sets of people are God's children. Only in Old Testament do such a thing existed. We now enjoy same level of grace and mercy for salvation. Jesus is the Lord of all (Acts 10:36).

Peter was amazed that salvation came to Gentiles also.

Jesus did not die for a particular person or people, but for the entire world. This is why Christianity is not a religion, but a way to the Father.
