“For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10: 11-13)
We have nothing to be ashamed of, nor can we put shame or judgment on another. All are God’s own ideas and He is just as loving and righteous and saving toward each one of us. The distinctions and qualifications set by mortal mind and accepted through limited human opinion have no power to change God’s infinite Love and the tender nearness of His embrace of all.
Each of us is a glory. Each of us is worthy of God’s care and rich in His grace—the bestowal naturally of His own qualities on each one of us. Our individuality expresses God’s infinite nature. None are the same. Each is distinctly pleasing to God as the very right concept He formed and eternally treasures. God does not care for any of us more or less because of the way we worship. We may limit our receptivity to His goodness, but we will never limit the measure of His loving-kindness and its sustained presence.
Our salvation is not contingent on a certain material makeup, a religious choice, or how educated we are in the scriptures or anything else. Our salvation is reliant on God and is seen by realizing what He is: the One Love that erases all other distinctions, washes away judgment, opinions, and condemnation and shows us all to be rich brothers and sisters, the right and lovely and lovable children of God.
