We are all the same in Christ

Therefore, put to death what belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, God’s wrath is coming upon the disobedient,and you once walked in these things when you were living in them. But now, put away all the following: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and filthy language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self. You are being renewed in knowledge according to the image of your Creator. 11 In Christ there is not Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all.

Collosians 3:5-11

Such a good reminder that not only are we the same in Christ, since he is our all and and inside each of us who are believers. But in context of the paragraph, it’s a call for me to live beyond what the world says we should. This, along with the previous chapter, is telling us that we need to shed our old worldly ways and put on our spiritual body. Or rather just live at the spiritual plane, which supersedes any human effort.
