In Christ’s eyes

Wednesday June 15th, Galatians 3: 25-27 But now you have arrived at your destination: By faith in Christ you are in direct relationship with God. Your baptism in Christ was not just washing you up for a fresh start. It also involved dressing you in an adult faith wardrobe—Christ's life, the fulfillment of God's original promise. 28-29 In Christ's family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal.  If our baptism dresses us in an adult faith, most of us spend a lot of time trying to get naked.  If this sign of maturity is to recognize there can be no divisions, humanity in general spends a lot of time and energy getting naked.  Wars, vast income differentiations, health insurance discrepancies, insane increases in CEO pay while the debate for a living wage on the bottom goes on and on.  The old days of slavery may be gone in the U.S. but the new attitudes of economic slavery through vast disparities in wealth are growing. Every major religion has as one of its basic teachings some form of the Golden Rule, do onto others as you would have them do onto you.  We say it, we say we believe it, but when it comes to the rubber meeting the road it once again becomes all about “Me” which is the very essence of sin.  In Christ’s eyes there is no difference, all are the children of God.  The differences we see are the brothers and sisters being mean to each other.
