Then Peter replied, “I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism. In every nation he accepts those who fear him and do what is right.
We take this for granted now, but the New Covenant created with “all” people was a radical idea at the time. God’s people, Israel, had been the “chosen ones” up to this point. For Jesus to come in and offer God’s favor on “all people” who would believe, upset the apple cart. We should never take for granted the sacrifice God made by become flesh and bone to reconcile our relationship with Him. Be thankful each day for God’s mercy and grace.
