RESPECTER OF PERSONS

(Acts 10:34) "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:"

I was reading this phrase not only in the book of Acts, but it is also said in Romans, Ephesians, and Colossians. And like many other times in writing, the first thing that comes to my mind is that of salvation. There are many today that think God should be a respecter of persons and they deserve to go to Heaven because of the family they were born into, or the church they belong to, or because they are a good moral person.

(Romans 3:10) “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”

Our text says, “God is no respecter of persons” which means God shows no partiality to any person. He is God, perfect in righteousness, perfect in impartiality, and perfect in love! The most popular verse in all the Bible, and is used thousands of times, is (John 3:16) “For God so loved the world…” Who does God love here? The world! No partiality there.


So, if that is case, then who gets salvation today? (Romans 10:13) “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” “Whosoever” means no partiality. Friend, it is not based off of your political or religious status, your education, or your bank account. As it has been said, “the ground at the cross of Christ is level”. That means that whosoever will turn to Christ, confess they are a sinner in need of a Saviour, and place their trust in Him. But so many miss true salvation because they have more “respect” of themselves instead of respecting what the Bible has to say.


If God was a “respecter of persons” when it comes to salvation, then what about the thief on the cross? Friend, he had nothing that day on the cross. All he could do was turn to Jesus, and call upon him that day like it says in (Romans 10:13). Friend, don’t let pride keep you out of Heaven. Won’t you come to Christ today before it is too late? Eternity is only a heartbeat away.
