First Things First
In Colossians 3:11, we see an amazing truth, “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” God does not care who you are or where you come from. All He cares about is whether you love Him through Christ by declaring Jesus as Lord and that God has raised Christ from the dead. This idea seems to be lost on both sides of the religious aisle (the church and non-believers). Christianity is not for just one group of people acting graciously on Sunday wearing their finest clothes, but for all men and women who would hear God’s Word. For, it says in Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” God shows no delineation between people who believe and gives no special treatment to anyone of His children over another. Acts 10:34-35, “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” As God has laid this truth out in His Word; so, I follow in my writings. This blog is dedicated to all the Christians who don’t fit into the church going stereotypes but love God all the same and to those who do.
