My brother is a sinner. How can we be equal before God?

Jesus, this sentence, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.” clarifies for us an important principle that You have taught us many times. It is how we finish that counts, whether we are the lifelong loyal child or the one who sinned greatly and finally came back to You. The reward for committing our lives to You is the same whether we serve long or briefly. Just as a small pile of sins does not make us more worthy, neither does a large pile of sins make us less worthy.
