Eternity in Our Hearts

Ephesians 2:11-22; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 

In our lesson today from Ephesians Paul writes that Christ has broken down “the wall of hostility” (vs 13-14). Paul is referring to the wall of hostility between Jews and Gentiles. But he was also referring to the wall that separates humanity and God. His words in Ephesians are not easy for us to relate to, but here is what Paul is saying to us: Christ came to bring reconciliation (vs 15-17). That’s the first important teaching of this passage. Christ came to reconcile us to one another and to God.  

In today’s second reading, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Paul points out “ministry of reconciliation” (vs 18). We may learn a few things from the text: the reconciled make the best reconcilers; when Jesus Christ captures our hearts, he changes our vision; the love of God is not really ours, unless we are willing to share it with everybody. 

How can our church and community participate in the ministry of reconciliation within the Australian context? We are invited to join God in His work of justice and reconciliation – and that is especially important in Australia between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. This reconciliation gives us a new identity in Christ. IL-WOONG.

Our Mission is to
Connect with people in Jesus;
Build each other up in faith; and to
Become Like Jesus.
