Psalm: 136

Meditation

Acts: Sometimes we need to experience something before we can fully understand it. In Mark 7, Jesus makes it clear that it is not what a man eats that defiles him. Peter was with the Lord when He said that, but it isn’t until Peter had this vision (3 times [for the normal mind]) that he finally grasps that all food is clean. The parallel message here is that what works for food also works for people. Jesus acts this out in John in chapter 4 with the Samaritan woman at the well.

Gospel: 

John 7:14-36

Acts 10:17-33
