The Great Equalizer: Galatians 3:26-29
“26) For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27) For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29) And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.” Galatians‬ ‭3:26-29‬ ‭
Faith in Jesus Christ is the great equalizer. There is no favoritism based on age, race, gender or social status. In fact, being rich or famous could be a personal stumbling block. The only way to become a child of God is through simple saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Paul further says in verse 29 that if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendant and an heir according to promise. You enter into the fulness of the blessing.
How you build upon your foundation in Christ is up to you. According to 1 Corinthians 3:10-15, you can build with quality materials or scraps. You can build something great or something pathetic. Salvation places everyone on equal ground. The choices we make and the diligence we put forward in seeking God determines the kind of life we build. Why not build something great?
