Read Colossians 3:11 (https://bit.ly/2Ub4feZ)
In Christ, we’re all equal. What a beautiful gift! Paul, the inspired author of Colossians, writes out so clearly that there’s no room for prejudice in the Kingdom of God. The church at Colossae consisted of Greek believers, not Jews. They were the recipients of prejudice – a group of Jewish believers was insisting they follow Jewish law in order to be saved. Paul wanted them to know they – and we – are accepted because of what Jesus did, not because of who we are or what we do. But let’s break down a few of the comparisons Paul made. “Gentile (anyone who wasn’t a Jew) or Jew” addressed heritage or race. “Circumcised or uncircumcised” addressed religion. “Barbarian”, which was anyone who wasn’t a Roman, addressed nationality. “Scythian” addressed culture. “Slave or free” addressed socio-economic class. To God, none of these things matter. When it comes to a relationship with God, the only thing that matters is the cross of Jesus Christ.
