All one in Christ

group

Today’s Verse: Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. NASB

What a wonderful comfort those words must have been to our brethren when they were first penned! There are no casts in Christ. No prejudice based on where one comes from or what otherwise might be those things that the world uses to separate rather than join. We are all of one Savior and are equal as brothers and sisters in Him. When we can truly internalize that spirit in ourselves and externally towards one another, what a wonderful picture to all those in the world and the church of Christ’s love and equality in Him. Salvation is available to all without reservation. We cannot do enough to deserve it. We can only accept, with repentance for the separation caused by our sinful rebellion against God, His boundless grace extended in Christ’s blood. What a wonderful state we find ourselves in as we join with Him in faith. Yes, let us bask in the Sonlight and let the warmth of this fellowship cause us to desire in our hearts to share it with all around us this day and always. We are all one in Christ! Hallelujah!!!

May God bless your heart as you seek His.

  1. The only thing good that lives in me is Christ. When we all realize that we have nothing of our own to boast about but only what is given to us by Christ, then we can understand that we are not “better” than others.

    Good reminder, Bryan.
