“In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality”
Peter is explaining to a wealthy man that the gospel of Christ is freely available to all people of all generations. The class systems and hierarchies of this world mean nothing to Christ. The total equality of people is hard for us to grasp sometimes. We judge on looks, where we live, and intelligence. Sometimes we think that the extremely poor person needs the Gospel more than the millionaire. When the truth is they need the Gospel equally. It doesn’t matter our birth or position. We are all equally in desperate need for Jesus. In our times of pride we can reflect on the way Jesus views us- as His children, equally beautiful, equally loved.
