“One In Christ?” Galatians 3:23-29

 

“There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus”

Galatians 3:28

Everything has a label to describe what a product is and its composition. Every nation is labeled for its system of government and ethnicity. We have categories based on the color of someone’s skin, their ethnicity, politics, their religion or lack thereof.  So along comes Jesus who describes people with one label; children of God. “See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.” (I John 3:1) The differences in people are obvious, but “now that faith has come” in Jesus Christ, everyone is woven into a single magnificent tapestry, of which you are a part. If one string is missing, the entire work could unravel; every string, every stitch, every color is critical and adds to the beauty of the creation.  So, no matter what label the world may place on you, or you place on yourself, Jesus invites you to experience the grace of God which is available to all people; curing the sin-sick soul, setting the captive free, and giving rest to all those who are weary. In other words, you are part of the Body of Christ, beloved and accepted because of who you are, not for how others label you.  The word “all” appears in the Bible 971 times and the “all” includes you, especially you. In a world that seeks to identify groups based on a set of characteristics and biases, Jesus says “come on in, whoever you are; the door is open, and my arms are open wide.”  You are not a category or a statistic; you have been “clothed” in Christ, and are a beloved child of God because you, especially you, “are precious in [God’s] sight, and honored, and loved.” (Isaiah 43:4) Jesus invites you to celebrate a life of grace, peace, and joy, go and do likewise.   Thank you Jesus.
