Freedom and Power (Acts 11:1-11

9Jun

We continue to take a fresh look at our baptismal vows against the backdrop of the formation of the early Christian church.  When we think of sin we rarely think of anything like freedom or power.  Yet our baptismal vow today asks if we accept the freedom and power God gives to us to resist evil, injustice and oppression.  That sounds like quite a good deal for us - freedom and power offered as a gift from God.  Yet it also comes with a caveat - that we take that freedom and power to resist.  The story of the Apostle Peter's evangelistic work with the gentile family of Cornelius is our framework.
