HE IS OUR PEACE
In Ephesians Two, Verse 12, it is written, ‘remember that at the time you were separated from Christ, alienated from Israel and strangers to the covenants of promises, having no hope and without God in the world.’
But now you have been brought near in the blood of Christ. FOR HE IS OUR PEACE who has made us both one and broke down the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments, that he might create in himself one new man in place of two, so making peace and to reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing hostility to an end. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off, and peace to those who were near.
Verse 21: in whom we have access in one spirit to the Father……..Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone. Verse 22-In whom you also are built for a dwelling place of God in the spirit.
Recognize and hold these words in your heart—His peace-broke down the dividing wall of hostility-create in us a new man-and preach peace-we have access -a dwelling place of God in the spirit. In truth this is a new offering to God the Father to be treasured and of hope for a future of spiritual belief.
Verse 9, chapter three tells us of the grace given to reach and share with the gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ for all to see what was the plan of the hidden mystery from god who created all things and make known the principalities and power in the heavenly places. What a spiritual promise to his people from so long ago and to each one of us, to bless and inspire us today.
To inspire us all to have hearts of faith, to trust that HE IS OUR PEACE forever.
