you are all children

20 Jun

160620Now before faith came, we were imprisoned and guarded under the law until faith would be revealed. Therefore the law was our disciplinarian until Christ came, so that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer subject to a disciplinarian, for in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.  (Galatians 3:23-29, NRSV)

There is no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female. We are all one.

Anything that we use or see that separates us, is no longer in play because we are all children of God. Named and claimed by God in our baptisms as co-heirs with Christ.

We belong to Christ and are a part of His body.

We are all His children.
