If we look back at the context of this verse, we see Paul talking about the Jews and the Gentiles becoming one in the body of Christ. These two groups did not like each other at all. But the Lord doesn’t care about our social norms or even what has happened to cause a hatred between groups of people. Why? Because Jesus is our peace. Not only internally, but externally with all people as well.
When we look back at all the greetings in the epistles we find the greeting, “grace and peace.” It is all from God because this peace amongst each other is not found in a situation or outside of anyone other than Christ as we grow closer to Him. Know that the Lord has broken down the barriers between people, even ones that seem unreconcilable, because HE is our peace. Is He yours?
Resting in Him,
Pastor Sean Boehm
