John 6:48

I am the bread of life.

 

God is not partial

Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favouritismbut accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.  - Acts 10:34-35.

We are so quick and find it rather too easy to ascribe partiality to God using this to explain away the reason why our faith does not appear to be producing much for us. This we do by ignoring the position of the scripture and every attribute of God that makes it impossible for him to be partial. The truth be told, God is not partial, rather we need to understand that he has set a standard by which he accepts and deals with everyone- the standard is faith (Romans 1:16-17). The scripture talks about a crowd of witness that we are surrounded by (Hebrews 11, 12:1), it did not stop there, but had this to say to us as well:That you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12.

1 Peter 1:18-19
“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
