Galatians 3:26-28 NIV 2011
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile… for all are one in Christ Jesus.
Paul declared in his letter each that follows Jesus Christ is a child of God. Romans 8:14, “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” Faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ links every believer together. No one is less and no one is more. Jesus’ disciples were to go, baptize and clothe new believers in Christ. Romans 13:14, “Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ.” No division should exist between believers. Ephesians 2:14a, “For he himself is our peace, who has made two groups one…” In Christ Jesus all believers are one.
Faith alone in Christ alone is my rallying cry as I read through Galatians. Though there are many different Christian churches, as Paul stated, we are all one in Christ. Coming to the cross of Christ we all stand on level ground when we approach Christ for salvation. It doesn’t matter what our past, He knows our future. Whether we come as young people or on our deathbed, daily He accepts us as we are. We can’t earn salvation because it is God’s grace gift. In Christ Jesus we are all one.
How will you share Jesus Christ with others?
One in Christ together,
