Read Galatians 3:23-29

23 But before the time for faith came, the Law kept us all locked up as prisoners until this coming faith should be revealed. 24 And so the Law was in charge of us until Christ came, in order that we might then be put right with God through faith. 25 Now that the time for faith is here, the Law is no longer in charge of us.

26 It is through faith that all of you are God's children in union with Christ Jesus. 27 You were baptized into union with Christ, and now you are clothed, so to speak, with the life of Christ himself. 28 So there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and free people, between men and women; you are all one in union with Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are the descendants of Abraham and will receive what God has promised.

Think

Paul writes about how faith supersedes the law.  The law marked some people as 'out' and others as 'in'; through faith all may belong:  "It is through faith that all of you are God's children in union with Christ Jesus." (Verse 26)

Pray

Thank you O Lord for inviting me to join our family.
