You are all God’s children through faith in Christ Jesus. All of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither slave nor free; nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. — Galatians 3:26-28 (CEB)
We are justified by faith in Jesus Christ, not through obedience to the law. This is symbolized by our baptism as we are cleansed by Christ, clothed by Christ, and made one in Christ.
