HE DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE
(The Gospel Of Jesus Christ Is For Everybody)
TO THE BIBLE Mark 16:15 NIV
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.””
“Jesus died for you, Steph! And He’s alive today because God raised Him back to life,” Georgina preached to her exchange student friend.
“No, Jesus died for only the Jews, that’s what I was told by Prof. Jerome!” retorted Steph.
“Who would you rather believe? The Bible or a man?” Georgina replied, “The Word says God gave His Son for the whole world, and not just for Israel, and that includes you too!”
The Gospel is no respecter of persons; its power works for everybody, and it’s been committed to our trust. If you were wondering, “How do I reach out to people of other races?” That shouldn’t be a problem. First, there’s no such thing as “other races”; God made humans, and the Gospel is for all. Never allow the glorious Gospel you’ve been entrusted with be tainted with any kind of discrimination or prejudice. Refuse it!
If you minister the Word of God in truth, it’ll break barriers and separate between those that are in bondage and those who really want to hear the truth. Truth has neither colour nor borders. Truth is divine! And the Word of God is truth (John 17:17). John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (NIV). Jesus came to save the whole world, not a select few. There’re hurting people in all nations and nationalities, so, we must reach out to everyone, beginning with those in our immediate spheres of influence. You’d be amazed at the results God’s Word will produce in their lives!
Could there be those that might show resentment or display some discrimination towards you as you preach to them? Probably! But never be intimidated by such people. Read what Apostle Paul said in Colossians 3:11 and refuse the worldly categorisation of people according to their earthly descent.
1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:27-28
Dear Father, I thank you for the glorious opportunities in the Gospel to manifest your glory to everyone, irrespective of their nationality, ethnicity, culture or ideologies. Through me, the unsaved hear and receive the light of the glorious Gospel and are transferred from darkness into light, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
