A Great Respect

Acts 10:33-35 (Today's New International Version)

33 So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us."
34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts those from every nation who fear him and do what is right.

The KJV says that God is no respecter of persons in the place of does not show favoritism. It means that God doesn't esteem any one person above another.

Come on, He has to love some people and hate others, what about those third world idol worshipers? Well, He loves them too. Peter thought that the Jewish Nation was the only group that was worthy of hearing the Good News. God showed him otherwise.

If we don't approach the people that we have deemed unworthy, and tell them about the Lord, we've missed the point. Do we really think that we know better than God?

Every person that we meet is a potential believer, we just need to show them God's love. Isn't it amazing how good God is to all of us?

Why can't we just show Him...

a great respect?
