Read Introduction to Colossians

 

“Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.”
 
“where there is neither Greek nor Jew”
 
“Where” means “in which state.” In Christ there are no class distinctions in Christianity. We must remember that people are not born equal. We have different IQ’s, physical beauty, strength. There is no such thing as true equality in this life. Members of the human race are not born equal but regeneration brings true equality to people. “Where” indicates our position in Christ. This separates us from religion.
 
Principle:
Regeneration brings true equality.
Application:
People are not equal physically, mentally or economically in this life. Only the gospel can place people on equal footing with God and others.
Regeneration means new birth. We were born the first time physically. Subsequently, we need to be born spiritually. Have you had a spiritual birth (John 3:3,7)? John 3 tells how to receive spiritual birth — we must believe that Jesus Christ saves us from our sin (3:16). Are you willing to be born spiritually today?
