Here’s a reassuring thought: God has no favorites and He shows no partiality! If you grew up feeling that your mom or your parents had a favorite child (who was not you), this will be very meaningful to you. It will give you reason to feel more thankful than you might have previously.
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Gal 3:26-28) We are all children of God.
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Gal 5:14)
So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality . . . (Ac 10:34)
For God shows no partiality. (Rom 2:11)
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. (Rom 12:16)
These passages from the Scriptures advise us to love all people and to freely associate with everyone. We are all equal in His sight because each and every human being was created in the image of God. God wants every human being to be saved by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
God offers salvation to all mankind as a free gift. He isn’t withholding it from certain continents, from specific nationalities, or from people with a certain blood type. His invitation is open to each and every person on planet earth. Glory to God! And He has given us each a free will so that we can choose our own destiny. We can say “yes” to God or we can say “no.” The choice is ours.
And then, we must keep on choosing, day by day, to serve the Lord with a joyful heart and to remain steadfast in Him. As long as we stay in close relationship with the Lord, He gives us His gift of grace to make such choices easily and with a sense of contentment. Hallelujah!
