The Recociliator

Scripture: Ephesians 2:12-20 Analysing our text Scripture today, for centuries there had been separation among the people of God before Christ's Death and Resurrection. In those days, the Jews and the Gentiles were sworn enemies because the proud Jews - having chosen to receive God's law considered themselves closer to God but the Gentiles far from Him - Jews had circumcision as the sign that they were God's people, and the Gentiles did not - The Jews felt the Gentiles enjoyed none of Israel's privileges through the covenants and promises because they were not God's people and had not the knowledge of God. - The Gentiles were not allowed into the holiest part of the temple by the Jews and this created a great wall of separation amongst them. Alas, Christ through His Death broke down this wall, abolished the offensive law and commandments, destroyed the hatred and made peace. No longer are the 'near to God' Jews more privileged than the 'far off" Gentiles. In the same vein, amongst today's Christian, in Christ, there is no distinction, for all who believe and have accepted Christ as the Lord and Saviour are all God's people. - We all have equal status as citizens of God's Heavenly Kingdom - We are all members of His family and heirs to His Throne - We all come into His presence through one Spirit - The new temple is not physical anymore but spiritual dwelling place of the Holy Spirit in us - We are all made alive in Christ - We will all sit in the Heavenly place in Christ Jesus. The emphasis is "to be in Christ" Today, another opportunity is here for you to be among this family of God and accepting Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour is the only Way. Tomorrow may be too late. Say this: Lord Jesus, I accept You today as my Lord and Saviour, come into my life and take control. I say bye bye to the devil, I enter into the Kingdom of Light, thank You Jesus, in Your name I pray, amen. Congratulations!!!.
