Galatians 3:28

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

The things that set us apart in the world do not under the banner and Lordship of Jesus Christ. We live in a day and age in which racism works in the hearts of many. Those under the deception of the world and its system have their eyes continually on that which separates us on the outside. But in Christ we are one. Jesus breaks down every dividing wall because when we place our hope and trust in Jesus we are covered by the blood of Jesus and it is the blood of Jesus that unites us.

The answer to the cancer and problem known as racism is Jesus Christ. For in Christ we are one and we are equal. The early church ran into an issue in which the Jewish believers looked down on the gentile believers. But the apostle Paul confronted this issue many times pointing each time to Jesus.

The body of Christ is diverse and it is our diversity that makes us beautiful. So many churches today sadly remain separated based on race. But when we come to understand the depth of what Jesus sacrifice means we will see our brothers and sisters just as the Lord sees them. We are one in Jesus Christ.
