Accepted of Him

The Tenth of Acts records Peter’s acknowledgment that God is no respecter of persons. Though the acknowledgment may have been new to Peter, the concept was not new at all. Approximately eight years prior, the Savior had sent the apostles to preach the Gospel to everyone everywhere. And, prior the commencement of the ministry of Christ, John the Baptist had admonished his audiences to abandon the notion that the descendants of Abraham were any less obliged than anyone else to bring forth fruits meet for repentance. With the lesson well learned, Peter would later write that God, without respect of persons, judges according to every man’s work and that we should pass the time of our sojourning here in fear; because in every nation, he that fears God and works righteousness is accepted of Him.
