God Does Not Esteem One Man Better Than Another
For there is no respect of persons with God. (Romans 2:11 KJV)
To have respect towards persons is to give higher regard for some over others. Somebody once said mankind comes to the foot of the cross on equal standing.
There is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile in this age of grace.
Or between those of a different race, color, or other social division tactics at work in this world.
There is no reason for elevation or promotion when being measured against the high and holy standards of God.
No one person or any particular race has a “leg up” on any other when it comes to appearing before the judgment seat of God.
Paul has been busy about framing the case in the preceding verses of this second chapter of Romans that there is no man who is righteous or above another when measured with the light of the cross at Calvary. God sent His Son to die for ALL mankind, born since the fall of Adam, with no man measuring up to the holy standards set forth by the perfection and righteousness of God.
God does not subdivide mankind into different spiritual cases. Or render some kind of impartial treatment towards one person or race over another.
ALL mankind will be judged with the SAME spiritual stick.
