Bible Passage: Ephesians 2:11-22

John 14:27; Peace for the saved.
 
Jesus has said that His word will cause a division between family members. One can’t fix that because God is the only solution. Our culture has changed things and we can not change what God has said. Our society calls normal the abnormal and abnormal the normal. Our teachers in schools teach kindergartners that it’s okay to be homosexual, yet this contradicts the word of God. The world wants evil tolerated.
 
A child of God, the saved can and will stand for Christ. In the moment that you will have to take a stand for Christ and you feel you can’t, God will come and take over with His peace.
 
The world has tried over and over to take over and create peace. They think if they remove religion that peace will come, yet this is false.
 
Ephesians 2:14; Jesus is Peace.
There are two types of people, the Jewish and the Gentiles. Jesus came and tore the wall down between the two and made them equal.
 
Ephesians 2:15-16; God made Peace.
Jesus came down in the flesh to be a human sacrifice in order to create peace. What separated us from God, Jesus came and removed the enmity. 
 
Ephesians 2:17-18; Jesus preached Peace.
Just as Jesus preached peace, we should be doing the same.
