Scripture: Galatians 3:26-30
Galatians 3:26-30 says, “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” We have now become the sons of God through Jesus Christ and because we were baptized into Christ, we have put on Christ. The very sinless, holy nature of Christ is now ours by identification, so when the Scripture says that there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female, it is talking about the fact that we are all one in Christ. If we are Christ’s then we all share in the seed of Abraham and heirs according to the promise. We begin to see how the Old Covenant makes the New possible in that it lays the foundation for this relationship with God through Christ. As we accept Christ, God accepts us and everything that Christ did for us!
