9:15 We Are Good Enough For God! Rev. Erika Demeter
In Acts, 10:1-2, 9-15, 34 of the Bible, Peter has a vision where he refuses to eat the food offered to him by God, believing it to be unclean. This symbolizes Peter’s prejudice against human beings different from himself. This morning we will reflect on the concept of prejudice, a human attitude that still exists in so many of our communities. Like Peter’s vision, the message of today’s sermon is that only God has the right to judge us, and He/She always says, “We Are Good Enough for God!”
