Different Cultures, Same God

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all." Romans 10:12 

God created human beings in the image of Himself. There may be differences of culture, race, language, and so on, but all humans are the same when it comes to one thing: all commit sin. Because this is true, all humans need the mercy of God. God's love and forgiveness, thankfully, know no boundaries. Jesus died on the cross, as a result of which forgiveness stands available for all...for anyone who repents of sin and places trust in Him. This "news" is good, because it means the ground is level at the foot of the cross, and that all are welcome. Thank God for this truth today.

How does this reality change the way you see people from different cultures?

Designed for a Purpose

"Everyone who is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made." Isaiah 43:7

 

Before a skyscraper ever extends into the sky, it remains as a concept in the mind of an architect. Throughout the design process, the architect plans with purpose and intentionality, beginning with the end in mind. He sees what the structure will be in the future once it has been built, even though no one else around him can. Similarly, God has designed your life and made you for a distinct purpose in His mission. As a part of that mission, He has given each of us, as Jesus followers, a platform with which to engage the world around us. That platform consists of our job, our skills, and our passions. The ultimate result is that He receives all the glory.

What are your skills and passions? How do you think God wants to use your job, skills, and passions to expand His Kingdom and glorify Him?
