“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, and there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” — Gal. 3:28.
The Word of God tells us: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” — Gen 1:27). Therefore, “put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony” — Col 3:10-14, ESV.
It’s time to amend and repair what is corrupt and to build the institutions of our government and society according to their God-ordained order and organisation. To see our nations transformed, we must go beyond a mandate that only sees souls saved.
Decree with us:

“A new command I give to you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” — John 13:34.
