Jesus died for the Jews and Gentiles

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, a city known as the birthplace of Jesus and King David.  It is a predominately Christian Palestinian city just south of Jerusalem. Therefore he was not a White man, African, Indian, German, Spanish man. He came from Israel which means he was of that descent. So I ask you the question, Are you prejudice? Do you think your nationality or race is better than someone else. Have you found yourself talking badly about another race.

There are so many different nationalities in the world but Jesus died for all. If you think you are better than someone else, then you might want to consider that Jesus was born a different race than you. Do you find yourself looking at someone’s skin color? If you have received salvation then we are all of Christ. If you cannot accept someone for their race, then you might be held accountable by God. This is not something to look at lightly. Jesus loved all and showed compassion for all the people, even when others looked down on him. Look at the Samaritan woman. She asked, “How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans (John 4:9). He didn’t care about her race but her soul. Jews looked down on people who weren’t of their race and they called them Gentiles. They considered them unclean people.

Prejudices are a form of pride. God hates pride and he says it is from the devil. 1 John 2:16 says, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

About Tracy K

I am a born again believer who has taught Sunday School, Women's Meetings and written blogs and books for the purpose of the ministry. My sole purpose is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe Jesus, the son of God, died on a cross for the sins of the whole world. I believe he arose after three days and now sits on the right side of God in Heaven. I believe Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. Without Jesus, there is no remissions of sins:

    Reblogged this on Godly Witnesses For Christ and commented:

    This morning I met with a man who I felt disliked me for my race. He was from the Middle East. The very tone and attitude that he showed me was of disgust. I know that some nationalities hate Americans and he was one of them. I know what it is to be hated just for being a certain race and believe me it shouldn’t be this way. People should not dislike or hate someone because of their skin color or what race they are. We should love others the way we want to be loved. The Bible says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    Now I am not talking about religion of another person. I am talking about only their race. It is perfectly fine to dislike a false religion. I do not want anyone teaching my children false doctrine. Psalm 1:1 says: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
    We should not fellowship with those that teach false doctrines or false religions, but we should not hate anyone. We shold pray that all would come to repentance and acceptance of Gods son, Jesus.
