Christian Witness in People of Other Faiths
It is very natural for those of us who are born and taught Christianity from a young age to take for granted our faith. However, there are many ways God reminds us that the faith we have in Him is not just something passive, but something that we must constantly work for and strengthen. One of the ways that I believe God does this was by delivering very straightforward messages to those of good faith. These messages, like the one that Peter received, redefine what we may not have realized about our faith and subsequently allow for more people to come to the faith. We see in this passage that Peter considers some animals clean while other unclean and thus not okay to eat. This is a misconception that God redefines but saying that all of His creation is pure and that none shall be deemed unworthy.
