Just One

today's reading.
Ephesians 2:11-22    Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called "the uncircumcision" by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands...

think about it.
The Gentiles (non-Jews) started out without hope and without God; what did Jesus do to change that (2:13-16)? What is the new condition of the Gentiles who believe (2:18-21)? How has Jesus brought you peace?

the blog.
Paul's message, that we are all one in Christ, was pretty revolutionary at the time he was delivering it. But when I read Ephesians 2:11-23 today, it doesn't seem that way to me because things have changed over the years. All I've ever been taught or known is that we are one in Christ and there are no distinctions. Even so, it is so easy to let our prejudices (and yes, we all them) slip in and get in the way. Our mindset should be--one big happy family.

So are you with me on this? What are you going to do with what you learned in Ephesians 2:11-23? Tami W.
