That’s just the way it is, I thought—until I read Galatians 3:28 and realized something new: We are all one in Christ!
Faith in Christ Jesus is what makes each of you equal with each other, whether you are a Jew or a Greek, a slave or a free person, a man or a woman.
Galatians 3:28 (CEV)
I have discriminated against other people. I have been tempted to look down on those I thought were not as smart as I am. I have ridiculed others for their inabilities. Yet as I contemplate this verse, I am reminded again and again that I am one with every person who believes in Jesus. Our mutual faith in Christ is the bond that joins us together. Though we are different, God loves us equally. I have some reconciling to do. How about you?
PRAYER: God of all, I am sorry for the ways I have mistreated other people. Forgive me. I know you are love and you live in me. Thank you for showing me your truth and for making me a new creation in Christ. Help me to love others as you have loved me. Amen.
