God is not a respecter of persons!

1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

[God doesn't look at our outer appearance, He looks at the heart or inner man].

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Some of the many verses that are important to this topic: Deuteronomy 1:17, 16:19; 2 Chronicles 19:7; Proverbs 24:23, 28:21; Romans 2:11; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25; 1 Timothy 2:4; James 2:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 2 Peter 3:9.

He shows no favoritism or partiality; He doesn't discriminate in any way. He judges fairly in all cases. He applies the same rules to each and everyone of us regardless of our outward appearance, financial standing, position in society, nationality, color of skin, language we speak, etc. We will get exactly what we deserve based on our choices in this life (see next verse).

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

[This is an appointment everyone makes; no one lives forever. Will you be rewarded or penalized? Good reason to truly repent, don't you think. Your choice].

What this means is that every single man and woman He has ever created is on an equal footing with Him (a level playing field for all). It also means He has an equal and unconditional love for each person He has ever created and He is not going to be playing favorites with anyone. Totally accept this truth or reject it; your choice again. We all need to hear His truth regularly! Keep studying the entire Bible my friends.
