Eph. 2:19-22 “Joined Together”

Passage: Ephesians 2:19-22
Service Type:

The gospel is good news of reconciliation - God sent Christ to bring reconciliation to this fallen universe (Eph. 1:10).  At the center of this is the Christian's reconciliation to God; He is no longer angry with those who are in Christ (2:1-10).  Christ has also brought reconciliation with one another, overcoming cultural animosity by abrogating the old covenant and uniting us in the new covenant.  Regardless of your age, race, sex, cultural preferences, or sins, you become united with one another through faith in Jesus Christ.  Christians share the same citizenship, family, foundation, and are members of the same Temple.  We are joined together and have become members of one another.
