23 Until faith in Christ was shown to us as the way of becoming right with God, we were guarded by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until we could put our faith in the coming Savior.
24 Let me put it another way. The law was our guardian and teacher to lead us until Christ came. So now, through faith in Christ, we are made right with God.
25 But now that faith in Christ has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.
26 So you are all children* of God through faith in Christ Jesus.1
27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have been made like him.
28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile,* slave or free, male or female. For you are all Christians--you are one in Christ Jesus.2
29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and now all the promises God gave to him belong to you.
