Today I have found another one of God’s many, many promises for us! So here it is.
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. (Colossians 3:11-13)
I think this is telling us that in Christ we have equality. There isn’t any more Greek or Jew, black or white, man or woman because Christ overwhelms all that outside stuff. There is no need for denominations like Baptist, Presbyterian and so on. We are children of God and that’s our identity. I like this. There is also instruction in these verses for us. Because we are all equal in Christ then we should be loving, patient, and forgiving toward each other.
What do you think?
You are loved!
