There are many things in this life that we can enjoy as an individual. A better standard of living enables more and more people to have "their own" THIS, or "their own: THAT. We live in a world where many children don’t know what it means to have to "share" – share clothes, toys, beds, baths, on and on down the line.
However, there is on thing that everyone has to share:
34 Peter said, "Now I know for certain that God doesn’t show favoritism with people but treats everyone on the same basis. 35 It makes no difference what race of people one belongs to. If they show deep reverence for God, and are committed to doing what’s right, they are acceptable before him. Acts 10:34-35 ( The Passion Translation)
When it comes to God’s affection – He doesn’t play favorites – we all have equal opportunity to share in His kingdom and in his heart. The above passage of scripture lets us know that there is no race, ethnicity, gender, or sinner that escapes the love of God, "if they show deep reverence for Him and are committed to doing what’s right". As the contemporary gospel song goes:
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
And I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah Songwriters: Caleb Culver / Cory Asbury / Ran Jackson Reckless Love lyrics © Bethel Music Publishing
Aren’t you glad that although you have to share, there’s enough to go around?
