Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.

What a joy it is to belong to Christ! We are clothed with Christ and have full access to God as children do with their parents. Our race, gender and social status have no weight in our standing before God, and they should not separate us from one another. Faith has justified us, and that is worth celebrating! As we celebrate, let us share with all those around us that they too can become heirs of the promise of Abraham—wholly receiving the freedom from the law that comes though faith in Christ Jesus, regardless of their standing here on earth.
