God's Unprejudiced Grace


Ac 15:11 We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we (Jewish believers) are saved, just as they (Gentiles believers) are.


Early on we see the apostles themselves struggle with the grace of God. Jews, even the apostles at first, looked down upon Gentiles as excluded from receiving the grace of God. But God is not prejudice in dispensing his grace. He called Cornelius, a Roman soldier, and his family to be the first Gentile Christians, but had to give Peter a special vision just to get him to preach the gospel to Cornelius. Peter finally came to the realization of God's grace saying, "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right." Acts 10:34,35 Likewise there was later a struggle concerning whether legalistic requirements would be required of Gentiles Christians, but the grace of God prevailed.


Therefore glorify God by attributing his grace as being dispensed without prejudice.
