Treat Everyone the Same
One law for all 49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
No stranger or foreigner was to eat the Passover 43 And the Lord said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
If a servant had been paid for and then circumcised he could eat, be part of the family 44 But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.
If they were just there temporarily or passing through then this ordinance wasn’t for them 45 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.
The sacrifice was not to be taken out of the house nor a bone broken 46 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.
This is more than just a meal
It represents Jesus dying on the cross
Not a bone of His was broken
What He did is never to be taken lightly
The feast, the ordinance was not optional. If you are in then you are all the way in 47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
Others could be welcomed to the feast but would first have to be one that believed and obeyed 48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.
They were to treat all alike. The obedient could eat. The disobedient could not
There were no second class citizens and there were no exceptions made
You either got circumcised or you were not invited
If you did decide to be circumcised, leave who you were, and join the jews, then you were more than welcome
Today we need to learn that we never lower the truth to get more members.
All are welcome but they must come according to what He has said that He expects
There is one law for all
You must realize you have sinned and turn to Jesus
