Galatians 3:23-2923 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, qimprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24 So then, rthe law was our sguardian until Christ came, tin order that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26 for in Christ Jesus uyou are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as vwere baptized winto Christ have xput on Christ. 28 yThere is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave7 nor free, zthere is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And aif you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, bheirs according to promise.
This excerpt from the bible illustrates a very simple and yet complex truth that even the world today has a hard time understanding. What is the truth? Being children of christ, we are all equal. Why is this so hard for us to really take to heart? Despite our ethnicitys, genders, values, wealth, and life stories none of those are defining features that should ever make us think less of eachother. I’t is our creator’s job to judge his creation. Shall we hold ourselves the same title as god? this makes no sense to persecute your christian brothes and sisters. Does the blood of christ not run through their veins? Of course it does, their gender or skin color is not a seperating quality so we should not make it one with our own judgements of rank. I believe we all have a hypocrisy in our lives. I’ve met a lot of christians in my life who claim to do the work of god but persecute agianst a certain ethnic background. The world classifies people with sterotypes but god well heres his take on classifying people (James 4:11-12 11 Brothers,
do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or
judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the
law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?) I hope if you hold any persecutions agianst a certain people that you remember gods law above your own logic. I do not mean that in a condesending way, I mean it in a truthful and concerened way. Please take this to heart my christian brothers and sisters. The world is in need of seeing hearts not seeing eyes. We should not turn to our own ways of seeing others, we should turn to the ways in which god has told us to see. When we can look at someone, we should see christ in their eyes. When we hear their story we should only feel empathy. There is no need to treat one-another differently, we are all children of god. God bless, thank you for reading.
