anchoring scriptures

galatians 3:26-29

so in christ jesus you are all children of god through faith, for all of you who were baptized into christ have clothed yourselves with christ. there is neither jew nor gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in christ jesus. if you belong to christ, then you are abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

ephesians 4:4-6

there is one body and one spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one lord, one faith, one baptism; one god and father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

acts 17:26-28

from one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. god did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘for in him we live and move and have our being.’ as some of your own poets have said, ‘we are his offspring.’

revelation 7:9

after this i looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the lamb. they were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

micah 6:8

he has shown you, o mortal, what is good. and what does the lord require of you? to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your god.

2 corinthians 5:20

we are therefore christ’s ambassadors, as though god were making his appeal through us. we implore you on christ’s behalf: be reconciled to god.
