"So Peter opened his mouth and said, 'Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears Him & does what is right is acceptable to Him.'" (Acts 10:34-35)"So Peter opened his mouth and said, 'Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears Him & does what is right is acceptable to Him.'" (Acts 10:34-35)

It is so refreshing to read God's Word (the Bible) and see such a contrast between what God wants for His people and what we see going on in the larger world.  We are witnessing a great increase in the public display of racism in which people of different ethnicities are being discriminated against simply because of the color of their skin, or their nationality, or how they speak.

In the New Testament, God makes it very clear that there are really only two groups of people: those who are trusting in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and those who have not yet made that decision.  It is really not God's desire that we have white churches, black churches, Hispanic churches, Korean churches, and many more based on skin color or nationality.  He wants us all to be one in Christ.

With God there is no partiality and neither should there be with us.  In our church, we have men and women from all different ethnicities, but I don't really recognize those differences.  They are dear brothers and sisters in Christ.  If anyone of Jesus' disciples would have a tendency to want to be proud of his nationality, it was Peter who was raised in the Jewish faith and was looking for the restoration of Israel.

But it was Peter who wrote these words in Acts!  It doesn't matter what nation you came from--what does matter is have you done what is acceptable to God.  And what is acceptable to God?  Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through me."  This is what is acceptable to God.  Have you made that decision to trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?  May God grant you the courage and faith to do so if you have not already done so!
