23 Before the coming of this faith,[a] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 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. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:23-29
The reading today tells us that the only true way to both salvation and justification is through faith in Christ, The Risen One. The Law at the time in Israel gave guidance and examples of restraint, kind of how a tutor would teach. But through profession of our faith in Him, The Promise became ours. All of us, no matter what our station in life, we are one body in Jesus.
Let us pray : Giving and Loving God, thank you for all you give us in this life of ours : you provide so abundantly. Please God, show us the way to be giving of ourselves to others , to show humility, compassion, caring and kindness to a thirsting and hurting world, allow Your light to shine within us, so that we can show that light of love to others. Through Christ Jesus we pray, Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
