“Then Peter began to speak: ‘I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears Him and does what is right.”
I confess I tend to favor some people over others. I easily make snap judgments about individuals. And I know I’m not everyone’s first choice. But God’s not like men. He doesn’t have favorites. He doesn’t like someone else better than you. He loves all equally. He sees our hearts and longs for all to have a relationship with Him.
6. Galatian 3:28
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
As humans, we divide ourselves into groups, the easier to judge each other. Men vs. women, Black vs. White, rich vs. poor. But in Christ, there is no division, nor is any group superior over another. We’re all sinners saved by grace. The Apostle Paul repeated in Colossians 3:11, “Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.”
No matter our race, ethnicity, gender, status, or upbringing, God accepts us when we believe in Christ.
