Discussion for Galatians 3

    For the one who commented we are all God's children, please read the rest of the scripture. We are all definitely not a child of God if we are not in Christ Jesus, To be a true child of God you must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in His death on Calvary for salvation. Jesus said in the 3rd chapter of John, " Nicodemus, you must be born again, do not marvel at this saying God bless you.

    "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." Does this mean that when we arrive in glory to meet the LORD in the Day of Eternity, that we will all look alike and be all the same? I don't think so! For John wrote in the Prophecy about a multitude that no man can number small AND greast, from out of every Nation and tribe and kindred and tongue worshiping before the Throne. And what about each one's abilities and work that Jesus shall give us to do, and the authority over cities etc? As far as any of us being superior or inferior, sacred or common, the leader or the helper NONE of those things have anything to do with us in Christ! The things that we see and experience now in this world about who's the greatest, and who is only in the world for serving their betters, does not exist with us in Christ! We are ALL brethren, and Jesus alone is our Master, our Leader, and our Superior! Do each of us actually have diversities of gifts, abilities, callings? Are we not all individual and particular members of the body? But all of us together IS THE BODY!

    PHILIPPIANS 1:27 only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of CHRIST that whether I come and see you or else be absent I may hear of your affairs that you stand fast --- in one spirit --- with one mind --- striving together for the faith of the gospel JOHN 6:63 it is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing the words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life PHILIPPIANS 2:2 fulfill you my joy that --- you be likeminded --- having the same love being of one accord --- of one mind 1 CORINTHIANS 2:16 for who hath known the mind of THE LORD that he may instruct HIM but we have the mind of CHRIST ROMANS 15:6 that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify GOD even THE FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST 1 CORINTHIANS 8:5 for though there be that are called gods whether in heaven or in earth as there be gods many and lords many --8:6-- but unto us there is but one GOD THE FATHER of whom are all things and we in HIM and one LORD JESUS CHRIST by whom are all things and we by HIM ROMANS 15:18 for I will not dare to speak of any of those things which CHRIST hath not wrought by me to make the gentiles obedient by --- word and deed --- 1 CORINTHIANS 11:1 be you followers of me even as I also am of CHRIST

    Now unto abraham and his seed were the Promises made but he said not unto seeds plural (natural Israel ) but unto 1 seed which is Christ the Israel of God,Thus its CHRIST that is gonna be multiplied as the STARS OF HEAVEN,THATS Y the sower wants to sow his incorruptible seed in our hearts that it might initiate a birth of christ in us. Unto us a child is born unto us a son is given, The new birth

    A former colleague of mine once said, "We are all God's children". That is so true.
  • A disciple
    "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus." Leading in to this statement, Paul uses the simile of a "Schoolmaster " and the idea of Graduating has many apparently confused about the importance of the Law "because we are NOW Christians under grace." What part of any of God's commandments are we now released from keeping? Seventh-Day Sabbaths? No Covetousness? Doing no evil to our neighbor? Honoring our parents? NO IDOLS? And which of all the Statutes and ordinances? The sacrifices and observing holy days? We read in the Prophets that these too will all be kept and practiced under the full weight of Christ's Authority, and penalty by His Rod of Iron if they don't. There are many things we have yet to learn! The Apostles commanded that the Gentiles should not be held under scrutiny or bondage to keep the Law of Moses, as in becoming Jews but they DID NOT DENOUNCE IT, OR FORBID IT! Paul's teaching was to show the completeness of the grace of God in Christ for the Believer NOT to overthrow what God had enjoined to Israel for ever.
