MORNINGTIME 2055
 
And the (Lord) spake unto (Peter) again the second time, WHAT GOD HATH CLEANSED, THAT CALL NOT THOU COMMON. Acts 10:15. (Don't get hung up in Old Testament sacrifices). The Lord is talking to Peter about a sheet full of unclean animals telling him it's now OK to kill and eat them. Peter answers he has never eaten anything unclean. After the 3rd Word from the Lord, Peter finally gets it. Here's my point. When God cleanses an animal and says it is no longer "common or unclean", than that animal is now of a higher importance to the Lord than before. When God says a lamb is now a Pure Sacrifice fit for the Lord, you DON'T call that lamb just another run of the mill sheep. HE'S SPECIAL IN GOD'S EYES. If you, Christian, are a "Living Sacrifice" fit for the Lord's Use, Fully Paid For by that most Precious Blood of the Lamb of God, the Lord and Saviour Jesus, the Christ, than you are no longer "common or unclean", AND YOU NOW, NO LONGER HAVE THE "RIGHT" TO SAY, WITH A GREAT SIGH, "I'M JUST A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE", THOSE DAYS ARE GONE!!! You HAVE TO learn, getting it deep into your understanding and your spirit, that you have been bought and paid for by the Blood of Christ, that you are now adopted into the Family of God, that you are co-heirs with Christ, and that He is your "Big Brother". You are no longer common or unclean, you are of Way More importance than that. This isn't about how you "feel" today, or whether you tripped up or not, this is about your Place in the Family of God. No more false humility and phony pride, YOU ARE A KING'S KID. Learn the part, it's AWESOME. When you see this, you'll never again sigh and say, "I'm just a sinner saved by grace". Don't worry, when you get this, you won't get "the big head", it's all a part of learning Who you are in Christ and in His Family. We have lots to learn, and as we learn all kinds of Things, we will, Be Blessed.
