"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." – Martin Luther King, Jr.
The apostle Peter said, "I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right, is welcome to Him" (Acts 10:34-35). The passages expresses a key moment in the life of Peter and also a key theme in the book of Acts. Peter needed to come to an understanding and appreciation of all people regardless of race. The gospel of Christ and the privilege of being a child of God is without respect of persons. In the book of Acts we take note of the expansion of the Kingdom of God from Jerusalem to Rome. Jews, Samaritans, and Gentiles in one body, the body of Christ, wearing one name, (Christian), all having become become obedient to the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Every race, every nation, every language, and every sinner is welcome. Unfortunately, we are often superficial and bigoted. Our Father is interested on what's on the inside. Fearing God and doing what's right is always welcome, regardless of race.
