Galatians 3: 23-28
verse 28: There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
I wonder what it was like to be part of the early church? Paul is reminding us there is no difference between us once we accept Christ. We are all “one” in Christ. There are so many different ways to “be a Christian” now. Do we recognize and celebrate what unites us? I feel overwhelmed and held down with administration and levels of power in our church. And then there are all of the other denominations of Christianity, some with less administration, and some with even more. I sincerely do not believe this is pleasing to God. What can I do? I must believe Christ is with us, loving us, and knowing our hearts.
Lord, help me to remember and celebrate what unites us. May your light shine in me, no matter what. May your light shine in all of us, and our numbers grow. Amen
