Ephesians 2:11-22

Jesus died to save sinners. He didn’t seek simply to deliver individuals from Hell but also to unite them as one community on Earth. The cross of Christ accomplished peace with God and with one another. The fact that Jesus died to unify believers is the focus of Ephesians 2:11-22.

The Apostle Paul reminds us of our hopelessness without Christ, our new relationships established by Christ, and our new community identities in Christ. Christians are fellow citizens in God’s kingdom and members in His family. Together, we represent God’s presence on Earth. United by Christ, we must be united in Christ.
