God does not show partiality.

Ephesians 6:5-9 

Favoritism is sin.

God calls us to use kingdom distinctions.

It is by grace that we are saved, not by the standards that the world has set for success and value.

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 

John 14:6

Matthew 25:34-40 

How do we practice the deity of Christ in our human relationships? It is really quite simple: look at everyone through the eyes of Christ. If the visitor is a Christian, we can accept him because Christ lives in him. If he is not a Christian, we can receive him because Christ died for him. It is Christ who is the link between us and others, and He is a link of love.[1]

God welcomes all that would come to Him in faith.

Matthew 22:36-40
