No Difference

Darrell W. Robinson, People Sharing Jesus, (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1995), p. 128

The phrase "no difference" occurs twice in the book of Romans. It is used first with reference to our human sinfulness. "There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:22-23 NIV). Second, it is used with reference to God's grace extended to all who will call on Him. "For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile&md;the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, &ls;Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved'" (10:12-13 NIV).
