Women in the Empire (Empire of Grace #3)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

In Jesus' empire the patterns and ethics of our world are overturned, freeing women to be what God intended in the first place. In fact, women are adopted by God the Father, becoming siblings of Jesus and co-rulers with Him over all of creation for the rest of time. Jesus is the great liberator of women, and at Redemption our goal is to participate in that.

For this vast topic, we covered many different passages, but our primary text was Galatians 3:25-28:

25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
