As our country remembers Martin Luther King Jr. on this day, Pastor Mark Tiefel discusses the word “Equality.” True equality is found in Christ Jesus who became “poor” that we might become “rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9). Jesus humbled Himself unto death that we might be reconciled to God. In Christ, we have been set free, and through Christ all arbitrary distinctions of the world have been erased through faith. Paul says, “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). But we are not to use our freedom as a reason to or excuse for sin. Quite often the world calls for “equality” that is actually in opposition to God’s Word. We find this in the home, in the church, and with respect to our leaders in government. When one fights for freedom that is opposed to God’s Word it actually detracts from the liberty that is found in Christ. Ultimately our lives center on God our Savior who has come for us and paid for our sins.
