The Miracle of Reconciliation in the Church – or what is the Body?
It is hard for us as Gentiles living in Colorado to appreciate (fully understand and comprehend) what division existed between Jews and non Jews in the first century. We will try to understand this in our exegesis of Eph 2: 11-22. It is only when we understand this great “divide” between Jews and Gentiles can we truly appreciate the existence of the Church. Paul describes it thus…so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross. I pray that we’ll be able to not only understand, but be amazed at what a miracle the Body of Christ is. Read Eph 2: 11-22 in preparation for this message. Pastor Rick
