Journey Through Ephesians, #7
So much has been talked about regarding division and hatred in the United States recently. But division and anger are not new concepts. Read Ephesians 2:11-16.
Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands- remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
Ephesians 2:11-16 NASB
Paul explained that the only way to achieve peace is through Jesus Christ. We can not have peace or reconciliation through any other means. Only through Christ are we all made equal.
We must understand and recognize that only through Christ will we be able to achiece the unity and oneness that God has for all of us. Social injustice will continue until we are all united under the cross and through the blood of Jesus Christ.
