Altogether Now

You are all one in Christ Jesus.
—Galatians 3:28

A prayer, written nearly 2,000 years ago, and prayed each morning by observant Jewish men, runs this way: “Blessed art thou, O God, for not making me a Gentile, a slave, or a woman.”

Paul cites the same three groups when he writes, “in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith . . . There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal 3:26, 28).

Connect the dots . . .

When God sent Paul sailing across the Aegean Sea, from Troas to Macedonia, for the initial planting of the gospel in Europe, his first convert was a woman, his second, a slave girl, and his third, a Gentile jailor (Acts 16:13–15; 16:16–17; 16:25–34).

Beauty and strength reside in unity;
ugliness and weakness in divisiveness.
