Glimpses Of The Great God: Day Twenty Four


 “For He Himself is our peace,

who has made the two one

and has destroyed the barrier,

the dividing wall of hostility,

by abolishing in His flesh the law

with its commandments and regulations.

His purpose was to create in Himself one new man

out of the two, thus making peace,

and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God

through the cross,

by which He put to death their hostility.

He came and preached peace to you who were far away

and peace to those who were near.

For through Him we both have access

to the Father by one Spirit.”

  Ephesians 2:14-18

Just imagine that!  Because of the cross of Jesus we can now not only get along with people we would having nothing to do with before, but now we are actually one new family made up of every ethnic group, language and culture on earth.  This is a miracle of what Jesus’ death has done for us.  If Jesus can bring peace between Jew and Gentile and create a new family out of enemies, just imagine what He can do between all the people of South Africa if we give our lives over to Him and allow Him to be our peace.
