For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups. Ephesians 2:14-15 NLT The world today encourages us to be divided. Too many people classify and condemn by race, gender and status, among many other differences we have. God created every one of us uniquely and Jesus gave His life on that cross to teach us to be united in our various distinctions. This is the way to peace. In God's eyes, there are only two kinds of people in His world: those who believe Him and those who don't. God sent His Son to break down the walls of hostility between us by pursuing us to follow Him and become one as we confess our belief in Him. Let us refer anyone who encourages us toward demonstrating something other than what God intended directly to His Word. It is already settled in Heaven.
