Collision of Faith
I have been really walking through the book of Acts and there is one story that time and time again just rocks my world. It is in Acts 10 that there is a Collision of Faith for two men. Each man in the story is challenged in area of faith. Cornelius is a man that is meeting a savior and Peter is a man that is being challenged about his traditional faith.
Acts 10:15 (NLT) The voice spoke again, “If God says something is acceptable, don’t say it isn’t.”
Peter is confronted with a God about his traditions so that he would be able to be used to reach Cornelius. I often wonder what it was like for Peter to take that initial step into the house of Cornelius. What were the fears that he imagined would happen or did he even fear? All I know is this Peter had to make a decision to step out of his traditional box to be used by God. Peter chose to take the road less traveled and meet the needs of a person far from Jesus.
What is an area of your life that is holding you back from reaching others? What is God telling you that He says is acceptable?
