There is No Difference
“But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:21-23).
“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).
Sin is a humbling thing. There is no difference in the humbling of all. Regardless of our status in life, our position, our possessions…we came in the front door of this life with no difference made because of our pedigree―all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
