Your Daily Dose of Boldness – Unity

Unity

For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility

Ephesians 2:14

  1. Christ is our peace: Ephesians 2:14 says, “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.” Christ is the source of our peace, both with God and with one another. Through His death and resurrection, He has broken down the barriers that once separated us and made us one in Him.
  2. He has made us one: The verse goes on to say that Christ has “made the two groups one.” In the context of Ephesians, Paul is speaking specifically about the division between Jews and Gentiles, but this truth applies to all who believe in Christ. Through His sacrifice on the cross, He has united us with one another, regardless of our race, ethnicity, or background.
  3. He has destroyed the barrier: The dividing wall of hostility that once stood between Jews and Gentiles was a physical barrier in the temple. But it was also a symbolic representation of the spiritual barrier that separated us from God. Through His death, Christ has destroyed that barrier, making it possible for us to be reconciled to God and to one another.
  4. We are now fellow citizens: As a result of Christ’s work, we are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God (Ephesians 2:19). We are part of a new community, united by our faith in Christ and our common identity as children of God.
  5. Our response: As we reflect on the unity we have in Christ, we are called to live in a way that reflects that unity. We are called to love one another, to bear with one another, and to make every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:2-3). We are called to be peacemakers, just as Christ Himself is our peace (Matthew 5:9).

Take a moment to reflect on the unity we have in Christ, and to give thanks for the work He has done to reconcile us to God and to one another. May we live in a way that reflects this unity, and may we be agents of peace and reconciliation in the world around us.
