From Enemies to Brothers
The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians is trying to do away with an old identity and encouraging a new identity for the Ephesians. In Ephesians 2:1-10, the Apostle Paul reminds them how the gospel brought them from a state of sin and death to a state of righteousness and life. In our passage today, Ephesians 2:11-22, he explains how the gospel brought people from a state of hostility and hatred towards one another to a state of peace and love towards one another. The Apostle Paul is declaring here and to us today that Christ is Our Peace.
