Lines are erased in Christ...

Acts 10:15 (NLT)
But the voice spoke again: "Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean."

- God begins to show us more explicitly, how all the lines we like to draw around ourselves, to separate ourselves from those "others," are wiped away in Christ.

Acts 10:28 (NLT)
Peter told them ... God has shown me that I should no longer think of anyone as impure or unclean

Even today many of us Christians fail to see this. We become judges discerning what we think is good and evil in others, (and telling "them" so in no uncertain terms) rather than loving everyone as Jesus loves.

Acts 10:38,47
"Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?"

- From Jesus, to the eyewitnesses (apostles,) and to those of the surrounding cultures and ethnic groups (nations) the Holy Spirit is spreading his presence in the world.
