A Tanner, By the Sea

When God revealed in Acts 10 that the salvation project was open to all, it happened at the home of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.

He lived by the sea because he needed water for his leather-working business.

He lived by the sea because he was a smeller of a feller.

Jews allowed wives to divorce tanners if they couldn’t take the funk. Jews didn’t hardly allow wives to divorce husbands for anything.

And here, on a rooftop, in a tanner’s home, God revealed to Peter that he and his comrades should not call anything unclean that God calls clean.

The setting is the message.

Whatever you do, wherever you do it, God is at work; work with God.
