All people are alike in God’s eyes


  

Even the most powerful and influential people are not perfect. Everyone in this world is destined to die. It does not matter what you possess, how much power you have, how highly you and others think about yourself, your race, or nationality. It matters what is on the inside because God looks at your heart while men look on the outside.

The ultimate question is, "What did I live for?" Because eventually you will pass away just like everyone else, only to become a memory, or to be forgotten. But One will not forget you, and if you served Him well, and gave your heart to Christ, you reward is eternal life.

 


 Psalm 82:6-7

6“I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’ 7 But you will die like mere men: you will fall like every other ruler.”

(“gods” meaning the Israelite leaders and judges. See also John 10:34 where Jesus talks about this)

(No matter how powerful one is, they will die. God gives men authority and power. It is man who pursues evil and selfish desires. It is by man's own decisions that he abuses the authority given to him from God. See Romans 13:1-7 for more about the authorities on Earth.)

 


 

 

Acts 10:25-28

25 As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. 26 But Peter made him get up. “Stand up,” he said,” I am only a man myself.” 27 Talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. 28 He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with a Gentile or visit him. But God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean.

(Even though Peter was given a high position in the church he did not exalt himself, or think highly of himself, but he stayed humble. Then it is true where it is written “Those who exalt themselves will be humbled but those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Matthew 23:12)

(So whether a man is a king, president, priest, or pastor; He is still only a man. And everything he has is owed to the Lord.)

 


 

Acts 10:34-35

34 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.

 

(God does not reject others because they are poor, or crippled. And God does not only accept the wealthy and those in perfect health. No one asks to be a certain race or nationality. No one asks to be crippled or sick. God looks at, and accepts, those with a repentant and sincere heart. see 1 Samuel 16:7)

 


 Acts 15:7-9

7 After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “ Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. 8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. 9 He made no distinction between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith.

 

(To be sure that God has accepted you into His kingdom, you must first recieve His seal of approval, His Holy Spirit. He will come into your heart and begin guiding and transforming your life. You will be in aw of the unmistakable presence of the Lord in your life.)
