GOD SHOWS NO PARTIALITY
"because the Lord’s eyes scan the whole world to strengthen those who are committed to him with all their hearts."—2 Chronicles 16:9 Common English Bible (CEB)
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him."—Acts 10:34-35 NKJV
Please also read 2 Corinthians 8:12 and John 7:17.
God blesses all people on the earth who in their hearts are seeking truth and there are no specific “religious” boundaries. In the early church Jewish converts to Christianity had a difficult time grasping how people outside of their religious community could receive God’s blessings in the same way they did. God may be blessing people in ways that we do not understand or that may not be the specific way that He blesses us in our spiritual journey. WE NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL not to allow ourselves to think that everyone else must experience God in the same way we do or have the same set of beliefs that we have. We just need to experience God in the way we are called to do and be open to any workings of the Holy Spirit that may be different than what we may think should be the case. There is always that human tendency to “put God in a box” and think that He can only work in certain ways and within the context of certain beliefs that seem absolutely essential to us. Not so! God is still sovereign and His ways of working to bless and bring wholeness to the multitudes are beyond our ability to ever understand. We just need to be sure of being in God’s will for our life end rejoice that He is working everywhere whether it is according to our understanding or not.
