Today’s reading: Acts 10:34-35
Thank God for accepting the Gentiles
We read in Acts 10:34-35:
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.”
Every Jew knew that God shows no partiality. It is written in their Torah (Deuteronomy 10:17). Yet, in the attitude of the Jews, you won’t see this.
A lot of Jews, especially, during, before, and after the time of Christ, believe that God was indeed playing favoritism when God chose the nation of Israel over other nations on earth.
They treat gentiles with great disdain, prejudice, and hate. Every day, they thank God that they were born Jewish and not a gentile. They tried their best to have nothing to do with the gentiles.
Thus, the vision of Peter was a dramatic change and powerful testimony of Yahweh’s plan of salvation. The life and death of Yahshua paved the way that no ethnicity or heritage shall stop a person from becoming part of God’s church.
Whether you are a Jew or gentile, a man or woman, young or old, rich or poor — everyone has an equal opportunity to be called to the Body of Yahshua.
We should be tremendously thankful that God doesn’t play favoritism. If He has, all is lost and we don’t have any chance to receive salvation. The majority of people on earth are non-Jewish. The New Covenant is truly a covenant with a better promise.
I think we don’t realize enough how significant this change is. God doesn’t look at the color of our skin, the house we live in, the car we drive, or the clothes we wear. He looks at the heart. He looks upon those who fear Him and those who work righteousness.
May we all thank Yahweh for being just. May we thank Him for opening the door for Gentiles like us. May we thank Yahshua for His redemptive work.
