God's New Community-Two Become One
Topic: Sermons Passage: Ephesians 2:11–2:22
In Ephesians 2: 1-10, Paul focuses on what Christ has done for us individually to save us as individuals, wrath for our sin. But God rescued us in Christ as a free gift, etc. (Ephesians 2: 8-9). In this paragraph (Ephesians 2: 11-22), we see a similar pattern, the difference being that the focus is on our salvation with reference to the body of Christ. Instead of aliens and strangers, we are now fellow citizens with God's people, etc. We need to remember who we are and let that affect our behavior. We are God's new community.
