Clothed With Christ
In the ancient world what you wore mattered. Your clothing indicated your status in the culture. Various laws told people what they should wear based on their position in life. Whether they were married or single, male or female, slave or free there was only legal and limited clothing they were supposed to wear. Clothing defined your status in the community. Notice what Paul had to say about clothing in Galatians.
27 For all of you who were immersed into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus—(Gal 3:27-28).
He said those who were baptized into Christ have clothed themselves with Christ. Being clothed with Christ determined their status before God. So whether they were Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female, they were all equally acceptable in Christ Jesus. They all had the status of mature sons and daughters before God. They all had the status and acceptability of Christ before God.
