As we wake up each morning, in different countries, from different strata of society, of different races and religions and tongues – we awake to how different every one is from each other. We may be in the same country, same social standing, same race and religion and tongue and yet we are different. Why? Because the Lord loves diversity and He made us unique with choices. Do we focus on our differences which tend to divide us or do we look at commonalities which would bind us together.
Sin has made us have preferences. First I am higher, better and smarter than you. You don’t see that? I blog you only read! So I am better than you. Really?
“He created all the people of the world from one man, Adam.” Acts 17:26
We are equal in creation. We all came from one man. No disputing unless we came from the order of monkeys, which I don’t believe.
God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith,” Romans 12:3.
If God treats us equally who are we to have preferences? He of all people should have preferences.. but He gave His Son for the world… in Americas, Asia, Europe, Australasia, Africa .
“Don’t forget to be kind to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it.” Hebrews 13:2
“Never think of anyone as impure.” Acts 10:28
“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.” Matthew 7:1-2
“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.”Hebrews 12:14
“What’s it matter to gain the whole world and still lose your soul?” Matthew 16:26
Has your soul found its rest in God?
We are equally sinners in God’s sight.
Only difference is the acceptance of the grace of God in our lives and we who are saved can say “There but for the grace of God, go I.” We have nothing to be proud of but the Lord.
