The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all. Proverbs 22:2
Many people in this world today worship celebrities. Whether they are musicians, actors, or professional athletes, the world puts them on a pedestal. People from all age groups, all parts of the world, worship these celebrities and try to copy their lives. And then when these celebrities have a great fall, maybe its a moral failure or a career failure, everyone is in shock that this happened!
The Bible tells us that everyone is alike, whether you are famous or not, whether you are rich or poor, God is your Creator. Secondly we are all mortal and we are all sinners. The Bible tell us “Everyone has Sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God” ( Romans 3:23) That means we all need Jesus. Whether your a big shot in Hollywood or a homeless person on the street, you need atonement for your sin
So why do we put these mortal sinners on a pedestal? One reason is we are all born to worship. If you are not worshipping God then you are worshipping something or someone else. Its in our DNA to worship, secondly remember our fallen nature. Without being born again we instinctively worship the creation instead of the creator. This is not only blasphemy in itself but will lead you straight to Hell
Jesus looked at everyone equally, The Rich Young ruler asked Jesus how he can obtain eternal life. Jesus told him “Sell everything you have and give it to the poor, then follow Jesus”. The Rich Young ruler , didnt like this and went away bitter. We dont know if the Rich man ever became saved or not, but we do know God is not impressed with worldly possessions or wealth
Celebrity or not, we all need a Savior and that is Jesus Christ! The maker and Lord of All Things! We are All Gods Children! Amen!
