Day 34: One In Christ

Galatians 3:28-29  :

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. If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to promise.

God doesn’t recognize physical distinctions in the spiritual world once we become Christians. He does still recognize them in the physical world, however.

This verse is saying that God sees us all as equal once we become Christians. We are all a part of Jesus Christ. Nothing else matters in the spiritual world for us. Inside there is no difference and God will not recognize separations that mankind makes. This includes color of skin, obviously.

An equally important thing to talk about is that Paul doesn’t mean that you stop being a Jew when you become a Christian. The way that this was explained to me is that, if you are a woman, you don’t stop being a woman when you become a Christian either. In Christ, however, there is no difference. In the spiritual world, we all are the same.

This is the basis for the United States concept of equality. Everyone is the same in Christ and the United States used to be a Christian Nation that was based on the Bible. Now that the Bible has been challenged by bad science, Christianity is being challenged with bad logic and we have what we have today. In an evolutionary world, it is only natural to think that some have evolved from a different ancestor and that it is only natural to struggle to survive over another species. Jesus didn’t teach that. He taught that we all came from God and are deeply loved by Him equally.

It should also be known that the family unit of man, woman and child also are still valuable today. In Christ we are the same inside, but we have different roles as long as we are in this physical world. A man is still to be the loving leader of the house as Christ is the leader of the church and a woman is still to be in the role of following the lead. I shouldn’t have to say anything about all of the other concepts as the Bible is clear on these (Ephesians 5).

Also, skin color is not an issue at all. God never did, and doesn’t now, judge people by the color of their skin! God clearly made all of us from Adam! We are one blood! This is also something that made the United States great because of a strong belief in the Bible. Bible believers then and now continue to recognize this truth.

Lastly, if we are in Christ, then we are saved by faith alone, because Jesus was Abraham’s one seed. He is the only road to salvation. Only through faith in Jesus can we become a part of Him and receive what He was promised.
