"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"
(Acts 10:34, 35).
God is a mystery and can only be known as he revears himself to man from generation to generation. He is a God of wonders. - Wonder in love, justice, forgiveness, power, healing, deliverance, glory and holiness. Considering the attributes of God, a hymn writer wrote:Great God of wonders! All Thy ways Display the attributes divine;But countless acts of pard'ning grace Beyond Thine other wonders shine: Who is a pard'ning God like Thee?Or who has grace so rich and free?
To Peter in our text, God is no respecter of persons. Our perception of God matters a lot if we must have a good relationship with Him and represent Him rightly. Just as His Omnipotence compels us to fear and revere Him, His mercy, grace and compassion towards us should make us worship and glorify Him. God sees humanity as one and is not partial in His love towards mankind. He deals with us according to the measure of our love and reverence for Him.
CHALLENGE: What is your perception of God?
PRAYER: Oh God, help me to know you more, in Jesus name.
