I was reading in the book of Romans recently and came across a simple statement which says, “For God does not show favoritism.”
In this section of scripture, the truth coming across is that God doesn’t show favoritism in his mercy nor his judgment. In other words, if a person wants to receive God’s forgiveness and peace which results in going to this place called heaven, anyone can receive them if they will repent, confess and believe. Also if a person rejects the salvation offered through Jesus Christ, then everyone no matter who they are, will receive God’s judgment and condemnation, and the result will be that they end up in that horrible place called hell.
No favoritism means that God does not discriminate based on race, color or national origin.
No favoritism means that God doesn’t discriminate based on income or family connection. No favoritism means that God doesn’t discriminate based on how many or how horrible our sins are when we come for forgiveness. No favoritism means that God doesn’t discriminate based on our gifts, talents or appearance. The flat-out truth is that God doesn’t discriminate at all.
The great news is that no matter who we are, God loves us and has made a way possible for us to have a life of peace, purpose and spiritual prosperity — but the choice is ours.
