In this world it is about how much money you have, who your family is, where you live, where you work, where you went to school, the colour of your skin, your gender…
Based on these things, we are treated one way by some and another way by others. Stereotypes and prejudices pervade societies, jobs, schools, churches, homes.
But the bible tells us that in Christ there are no stereotypes or prejudices. In Christ I am equal to every other individual.
There is not a part of heaven for the rich and another part for the poor. There won’t be a part for one ethnicity and another part for another. Men wouldn’t be exhaulted to a higher position than women.
In Christ WE ALL ARE EQUAL and this is not just limited to heaven, but this is how it is now.
All of us are sinners. God’s agape love is towards all of us and this is why Christ came and died. When Christ came and died, He died for every one of us.
In dying He paid the price for all of our sins and if we choose we can be heirs of God. We are not unequal heirs where one gets more than the other. No! We are joint heirs with Christ!
Romans 8:17 (NLT)
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
God loves each of us the same as He loves His Son. No matter what prejudices we might face in this life and what sufferings we might face because of it, let us always remember that we are All EQUAL IN CHRIST.
