For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. (Ephesians 2:14-15)
Join me this Sunday morning (and don’t forget to invite a friend) as we continue to work our way through the Book of Ephesians.
Having established clearly the foundational definition of the gospel Paul now moves on to describe God’s plan to unite all things in Christ by this same gospel.
In one “body” God is uniting his church and breaking down all that separates us from each other and from Him.
In one “body” God is tearing down divisions between political, social, and ethnic groups.
In one “body” God is removing every barrier between husband and wife, parent and child; and even master and slave.
We have seen the powerful transformative effect the gospel has on every individual who believes but now we are reminded that individuals do not live in lonely isolation. The gospel impacts and transforms whole communities as it seizes the hearts and minds of those it encounters! See you Sunday morning.
