When it came to salvation, the Jewish people felt pretty special being God’s chosen. For He protected, loved, and picked them above every other peoples in the world. So they were filled with jealousy when Peter proclaimed God’s plan of salvation is available to all, both Jew and Gentile. But it has always been God’s plan from the start that none of His children should perish. For just like John 3:16 tells us, “whoever” receives Christ as their Savior shall be saved. Not just some, not just a few, but whoever. Because in God there is found no partiality. And all who abide in Him in love and obedience, will receive His gift of everlasting life!
