In Ephesians 2, the Apostle Paul is writing to the Gentile believers in Ephesus, and affirming that they, to, are now part of the kingdoms of God. He explains how Christ bridged the gap between the Jews and Gentiles and gave the opportunity of everlasting life for all who believe. Perhaps there were doubts among the people. Perhaps the Jewish believers were set against the Gentile belivers. Whatever the case, they needed this reminder that they were all part of one body of believers. Jesus tore down the gap between the Jews and Gentiles. Through his death and resurrection he made a way for everyone to go to heaven.
He became our peace.
What a wonderful thought, and one I often needed to be reminded of.
In the middle of a world that is full of arguments and strife, of people saying that some belong to God and that other’s do not, God gives us peace.
He gives us peace that only comes from Him.
Peace that passes all understanding.
Peace in the knowledge of our salvation.
Peace that He will provide.
Peace in the middle of chaos.
Peace on the calm days as well.
Peace that never leaves.
Peace that dwells within us.
Oh what a wonderful peace!
Where do you sense God’s peace today?
