Acts 10:34 (KJV) Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Looking up the word Respecter on Dictionary.com they gave the definition of what no respecter of persons means. The meaning is a person whose attitude and behaviour is uninfluenced by consideration of another’s rank, power, wealth, etc
To God, there is no one who is greater than the other. He has though given each of us different talents, different testimonies and so on. We all have come from different walks of life.
When I got my non-Id information regarding my adoption. When I read that I was born out of wedlock I felt my heart go to the pit of my stomach, I felt sick, and I felt like it was unfair.
The reasoning for that is because I grew up in a home where we were taught that you wait until your married. It also never entered my mind that I was born out of wedlock until I read the records. I had this thinking that the reason I was placed for adoption was because two people just could not take care of me. Also, a lot of my friends were born from a marriage relationship.
Not that long ago I remember overhearing a conversation, and someone said they believed that God would not use someone who was born out of wedlock as greatly then someone who was born into a family with two parents.
When I heard that I was not happy, and I kept my opinion to myself. I had thought about what they said. What they said is wrong. God is no respecter of persons. He does not look at those born out of wedlock any different than those born into a marriage relationship.
God will use whoever is willing to be used by him. No one is greater than another in the Kingdom of God.
