AUGUST 26 READING…EPHESIANS 2


Paul shares with us some wonderful truths and promises in Ephesians 2. He tells us that though we were all part of the world, under God’s wrath, because of our disobedience…we are now, because of God’s great mercy and love, saved and forgiven, a part of the body of Christ. We are now seated in Christ in heaven, though we still walk on this earth for a while. We were saved by the grace of God, and not because of either our good works or deserving our salvation. God has created us anew in Christ Jesus…and now we are His masterpiece, able to do the work of God.


Jesus is our peace. First with God, and then with the Jews who have put their faith in Jesus as Messiah. Before we were ignorant of the things of God, not having the law…while the Jews having the law were well familiar with the things of God. Yet they like us, were dead spiritually, but through Jesus we were both made alive. Jesus abolished the law, in that He fulfilled it perfectly for both Jew and Gentile. Now we are one people in Christ Jesus…we are the church. We are building blocks in that magnificent house of God…built up on the Apostles…with Jesus as the Chief Cornerstone. It is Jesus that all things are built on, and built from. Even our new church name declares that truth to the world, Cornerstone Family Church…where Jesus is our foundation, family our focus, and the world our mission. All by God’s marvelous grace!


Please share your thoughts from today’s reading.
