[The Glory Unveiled]
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. ( Galatians 3:28 )
In our world today, almost everything is done on the premise of social stratification. Even T. V commercials are done from this same perspective to reach targeted consumers. We have divided humans and our way of life according to different philosophical ideologies and societal standards. The imaginary margins are drawn to separate one human from the other. But in Genesis 1:27, it was not so. God created mankind (all of humans) in his image and likeness. This means there was no disparity between humans from the beginning. We were (are) all like God. And whatever was in the beginning is the true pattern and the original intention for that thing. In the beginning, God did not put any wall of divide, be it social, political, economic, religious, tribal or racial, between those He created. In the New Testament reality verse of scripture above, the apostle Paul reiterates this truth. We are all one in Christ. The wall of divide that had separated us from God and divided us into factions had been broken when Christ Jesus went to the cross on our behalf. In Christ Jesus we have become one body even as the scripture says that we are the body of Christ—members together of one body (1Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 3:6). Let this be our mindset so that nothing and no one would demean us or break our self esteem.
Prayer_Bead: Loving Father and King, thank you for breaking the wall of divide erected by the law and giving me access into You through Christ. My worth is not in my gender or bank account but in the finished works of Christ.
