Reconciliation (Ephesians 2:13-19)Tommy Boring, March 18, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
Of all the things that we can think of what God has done for us, reconciliation is the last thing we normally think of. Our job is not to judge another but to simply lift up His word to all. God has removed the wall of separation between Him and us, Jews and Gentiles, men and women, etc. There is no big or little persons within the world because it's level at the foot of the cross. Clicks and crowds do not matter to God. There should never be a "spiritual racism" in regards to the name over the door of the church. Jesus didn't come for the Jews only or to the Gentiles only. Jesus came for all! As long as there is a division there can never be a unity of one. What separates each and everyone person from God? Sin. There is no big or little sin, they are all simply a sin. We are all sinners, even the saved are sinners but they are saved by grace. The only way to deal with sin is to accept Jesus Christ as your savior. There is no doubt, no question about whether God could save someone. If it wasn't for reconciliation we would still be separated from God by sin. The ONLY hope that we have is in Jesus Christ, so follow Him and give Him everything.

13But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; (KJV)
