Scripture: Ephesians 2:13-14 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility…
Devotional: In all the ground we have covered during these Advent days, Waiting, the Light, Ransom, this sums up the entire purpose for all those things. Because of Christ Jesus, all who were once far away have been brought near, by His blood. And that which once divided us, has been destroyed. Jesus is our Peace.
Verse 18 goes on to say, “For through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.” Glory to the newborn King! For He has done this. He has saved us, ransomed us, redeemed us. Let’s celebrate that with great thanksgiving and praise.
- What has it meant to you to be brought near to God?
- How have you been blessed by the peace offered through Jesus Christ?
- If you have yet to receive the gift of salvation brought through Christ, would you surrender your life to Him now?
