You are no stranger to God!




We must remember that even in the OT, God had a plan of redemption for the entire world. God even made allowances for people who were not a part of the nation of Israel to be partakers of the promise. Pay close attention to the word “stranger” in these passages:

1. The same Sacrifice

Num. 15:11-16”Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid. According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number. All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do.”

2. The same Law

“One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD. One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.”

3. The same Judgment

V30-31 “But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.”

4. The same Lord

V40 “That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.”

LESSON - As we consider the multitudes of lost people around us, has it entered your mind the responsibility God has given us to reach people that look nothing like us? People who are not a part of our race, religion, socio-economic level, or culture? This passage should remind us again of God’s overwhelming love for all people. Everyone you see is going to spend eternity somewhere and God is no respecter of persons regarding His sacrifice, Law, Lordship, or judgment.

Acts 10:34-35 “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.”
