So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
We are need a place to fit in. I remember as a teen I tried out for the basketball team. I went to the tryouts, my mom bought nice basketball shoes and had the want to play. As I went through the tryouts there were so many who were better than i. Well I need make the team and felt like a loser
When you are follower of Christ you are in Christ and that is a great plan.

When hard pressed, I cried to theLord; he brought me into a spacious place. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
When the stresses of life get to you run to the Lord. I know in all things I can trust the Lord.
In my life, the stress of ministry has gotten the best of me. Yes, I know that I can trust the Lord in all things. Sometimes I just need a reminder. Maybe today is yours.
So be reminded

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Walk in love! Well when I look at this work I find many time the opposite of this ! People have the opportunity to walk in all kinds of things. For example walk in criticism or walk in anger. You can probably think of many other walks.....
But as I read this passage taking me to 1 cor 13. Where is defines what love is. When we know what Iove is then we are more apt to walk in.
Walk in Love today

Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
Interesting passage! Before one can take causes for others we must evaluate ourselves! When you begin to evaluate yourself and ask for forgiveness from the Lord likely that you will become a hypocrite when helping someone else.
Just a thought today!

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Wow! Think about it! In today's world we don't see much of this from the top down. This is a challenge for us in ourbwe should act and walk.
May we all take it to heart
