Unity in the body of Christ.
The distinctions that set Jews and Gentiles apart are gone forever in Christ. The body of Christ is one, there is no more Jew and Gentile.
Regardless of your background, you are adopted into one big family if you belong to Christ.
“So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.” (Galatians 3:9).
Abraham looked forward to the promised land.
“Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.” (Hebrews 11:10).
Certain symbols are used by Paul to show that both Jews and Gentiles belong to a new family. He uses words like City; Family and Building. Jews and Gentiles are no longer in opposite sides of the fence, but fellow citizens. They are no longer foreigners, but members of the same household.
If you are a believer in Christ, regardless of your background, you are a privileged fellow citizen of Christ. The blessings promised to Abraham belong you.
