In life we can believe we are inferior to others. We can be trapped in insecurity and fear. However, God made us in His image, every single one of us, and not one is superior to the other; just everyone of us unique and special.
Jesus came to earth to make a place for all of us at the table: the prostitute, business man, tax collector, the outcast. Even when our upside down world ignores the truth that we are equal, God raises up deliverers to fight against injustice and inequality: Gideon, Moses, Deborah, Esther, Nehemiah and modern day ones like Rosa Parks, MLK Jr., and Nelson Mandela.
God’s love for us was revealed perfectly in Christ Jesus’ life, death and resurrection from the dead. Become of Jesus, we can all receive God’s gift of righteousness and abundant supply of grace not by works but by faith.
Jesus not only made a place for all of us at the table but through His finished work on the cross we become co-heirs with Christ and share in His inheritance. God’s relentless, unconditional, overflowing and unfailing love washes away the lies of inferiority and insecurity.
The more we look to Jesus, the more we will walk free knowing that we are loved and approved; and now through His precious perfect blood and broken body on the cross we are co-heirs with our beautiful risen savior Jesus Christ.
Galatians 3:28 - There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
“All men, created alike in the image of God, are inseparably bound together" “This is at the very heart of the Christian gospel.” It is the heart of the American creed as well. - MLK jr.
"Each Easter marks the rebirth of our faith. It marks the victory of our risen Saviour over the torture of the cross and the grave. "Our Messiah, who came to us in the form of a mortal man, but who by his suffering and crucifixion attained immortality. "Our Messiah, born like an outcast in a stable, and executed like criminal on the cross. "Our Messiah, whose life bears testimony to the truth that there is no shame in poverty: Those who should be ashamed are they who impoverish others. "Whose life testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being persecuted: Those who should be ashamed are they who persecute others. "Whose life proclaims the truth that there is no shame in being conquered: Those who should be ashamed are they who conquer others. "Whose life testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being dispossessed: Those who should be ashamed are they who dispossess others. "Whose life testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being oppressed: Those who should be ashamed are they who oppress others." - Nelson Mandela
