“Self” is only an illusion

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

‘Self’ is only an illusion;
‘Me’ and ‘you’, a deep delusion.
‘Us’ and ‘them’ are meaningless:
All God conceives is one.

For he is over all he makes,
And dwells in all he procreates;
To claim autonomy, absurd:
All God begets is one.

For he adores all he sustains,
And lives through all that he maintains.
Three-fold, in unity, he reigns:
All God brings forth is one.

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:4-6; NLT).
