Do not call anything impure that God has made clean

Acts 10:9-16


About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.” 14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.” 15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” 16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.




彼得根据当时的传统,约中午时分前去祷告。在忙碌的生活中安排一段特定的祷告时间是好的。这样做不是因为我们非得遵循一套特定的行程或安排,而是以免我们忘了那最重要的事 ——祷告。我们对时间的观念应该像我们对空间的观念一样。

We must not put it off from day to day but go quickly wherever God calls us, as soon as we hear his voice.

Peter went to pray about noon according to his custom, for when we are busy almost all day it is good to have certain times appointed for prayer–not because we are tied to set times, but in case we should forget about prayer when it should be our priority. We should think in the same way about time as we do about place.
