“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.” “Where” indicates our position in Christ– the “new man” of the previous verse. This status with God separates believers in Christ from religion. In Christ, there are no class distinctions in Christianity. We must remember that people are not born equal. We have different IQs, physical beauty, and 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.
Regeneration brings true equality.
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 for the first time physically. Subsequently, we need to be born spiritually. Have you had a spiritual birth (John 3:3,7)? John 3 tells us how to receive spiritual birth — we must believe that Jesus Christ saves us from our sin (Jn 3:16). Are you willing to be born spiritually today?
