At Jesus’s Birth Walls of Discrimination Come Down
December 19, 2022

Thought for Today: “At Jesus’s Birth Walls of Discrimination Come Down”

“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” (Luke 2:10)

Shepherding was a job back in those days that was given to servants, or the least family member, as we see with David, who was the youngest of eight boys, was given the job of watching the family’s flock.

What a sweet message then for these lowly shepherds to hear, that is, a word of assurance from the angel that this good news that brings great joy was not just for the rich and famous, but for everyone, including lowly shepherds like themselves. It is this very message that has broken down the walls of discrimination, so that for those who believe there is no longer red, yellow, black, or white, male or female, just children of God.

When Jesus died upon the cross, the veil of the temple separating the holy of holies was torn in two from the top to the bottom. This illustrates that the wall between God and humanity has been broken down, including the wall of discrimination between the races and sexes.

The grace of God has been extended from the Jews to all people who will believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. The grace of God abounds to all people and forgiveness becomes available to all through the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God.

Paul said, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28 NKJV)
