“But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith… There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:25-26, 28 ESV
Such comforting and encouraging words: through faith in Christ we are now “one” with him and with all who put their hope and trust in him. Resultantly, we have been emancipated from the penalty of the law and are set free under our Savior’s covenant of grace. We are set free to unreservedly love our God and our neighbors. And there are no biases toward ethnicity, social status, or gender. Thanks to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, together as “one” we are the beloved!
