Good News for the Stranger

I was reading in Numbers 15 today - and this is the application I felt applied to us today:

Numbers 15:15,16

"One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you...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."

Numbers 15: 29

"..One law for him...that is born among the children of Isreal, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them."

Good news - whether we are children / born of His covenant spiritual Israel, or whether we have not been part of it and now want to join ourselves with it - God sees us in the same light, there is one law and one manner for all, our great High Priest makes atonement for us all the same, and we are forgiven in the same way.

Acts 10:34,35

"..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."
