No Partiality Shown
By Mary Wolf
God is not willing that any should perish.
It does not make a difference what nationality a person is, whether poor or rich, not even which religious observance was taught. Everyone must come to God the same way.
Jesus tells us in His Word that He is the way.
“No man cometh unto the father but by me”.
With pretty strong language, he calls those who try to enter in any other way a thief.
The price has been completely paid, for our redemption.
There can be nothing added, nor taken from, the price of death that Jesus paid on the Cross. Because He was the sinless Son of God only he could make the required atonement price.
He and He alone could purchase eternal life.
Yet, all are welcome to partake of this precious gift.
While it is cost the one who receives it nothing, it is not a free gift.
It cost God his only begotten son.
This is a beautiful example of showing no favoritism.
The offer was certainly was given without partiality.
A gift is such a personal association between two people.
To offer something to someone shows some sacrifice for the giver.
It involves the purchase price, time spent, and most of all a desire to build an alliance with the person to whom it is offered.
The most incredible thing about God's love for us is his ability to love us without partiality, although we were unsuitable for a Holy God to love. God gave the gift of eternal life out of love.
Any gift, when offered is either received or rejected.
For those who receive that gift, we choose to accept his gift by faith. In so doing we are giving our love to him in return, by placing our trust completely upon his word.
If a person declines, it will do the exact opposite of what it was intended.
Because we are limited, our love is also limited. It must show favoritism, for it is limited to only those who have earned it.
This is true of any rewards, or payment system established. Compensation is given for an earned act. When a relationship grows between two people, we come to expect certain response from one another.
God's love is different, because he can give unconditional love.
No matter how much we try to show Him that we want to return that love, He can never love us more than He did that day he sacrificed his Son for us.
He loved us without partiality. He loved us with an everlasting love.
His love never changes because He never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
