Daily Bible Reading: Acts 10:24 – 48
Verse of the Day: Acts 10:34 – “And Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:”
Continuing with the thought presented yesterday, we see again the emphasis upon the fact that God does not show partiality. To the mind of the Jews, they saw themselves as “God’s Chosen” and those all others were rejected. Now in the Church, God was teaching that through Jesus’ shed blood all are accepted if they trust in Him.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus told them that every kind of person from every nation was welcome to come into the kingdom of God. The only requirement... repentance of sin and placing one’s faith in Jesus Christ. There is no room in God’s Kingdom for rejection of anyone for any other reason than rejecting Jesus.
Prayer: Jesus, You shed Your Blood for every person who has ever lived. You are offering to everyone Your forgiveness and redemption if they will only take it. Help me to be one who shares with everyone I come in contact with. Amen.
