Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, (Eph 2:15-19 NKJ)
Jesus through his own body reconciled us to God and made peace, not just to those that were there when it happened but forward to the future. Now we are no longer ‘strangers and foreigners’ but members of the household of God. So if we aim to be Christlike shouldn’t we be about the same, speaking peace as peacemakers and looking to reconcile?
Changing our thinking will change the outcome. The world in which we live needs to hear the message of peace and reconciliation.
