The Scriptures say that we were “made in the image of Elohim.” (Genesis 1:26) So why do we draw a line between who is the better human? Who is the better race? Because when it comes down to it, we all have flesh, blood, bones, and atoms to make up who we are.
We all came from two people, and one Creator,
and that is all that should matter..
But it doesn’t end there, does it? Everyone, no matter what race, places themselves in a category. Someone is always better than someone else. That’s just the way we have been since the fall of man. Why? Because we are flawed. However, we shouldn’t stop there and use that as an excuse when the Scriptures clearly state that we are to love our neighbor. And our neighbor is our fellow man.
In Acts, there were those who were teaching that unless the Gentiles be circumcised they cannot be saved. But Peter told them that Elohim makes “no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by belief.” (Acts 15:9) YHWH looks at the heart, not your race, or your social status. Never, since creation, has the appearance made a difference in how YHWH looks at His people. Therefore, why should we look at others any differently?
We are all created equal in the image of our Creator. If you are a believer, the heart should be the only thing you look at because we are one body. The color of your hair, or your eyes, or your skin, should not define who you are. Where you stand in society should not define who you are.
Your Faith is what defines you.
If you are a believer, it is no longer you who live, but Messiah who lives in you. (Galatians 2:20) And if you are of Messiah, you will look at others the way He did—with love. The world may have a definition of who is better than who. But
YHWH’s definition is worth
more than the world’s.
