The world on God’s heart
Acts 10: 11
He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.
When heaven opens something always falls.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what God is bringing. It can be very surprising and it can even be offensive. But God will bring onto the scene all that He needs. He will use the most demonstrative of visual aids.
Peter wasn’t expecting a large sheet to fall. He could not have predicted why it had come. But when heaven opens what does come will be for Gods glory here on earth. Symbolised by the sheet being let down by the 4 corners, these 4 corners of the world reveal again the heart of God for His world.
Heaven opens and God sends something to reveal His love for the world. Do we want this? Do we want to be part of this? Be careful how you answer!
