Destroyed Division

Destroyed Division

Jun 24, 2018

Passage: Ephesians 2:11-22

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: Me to We: A Study in Ephesians

Category: Discipleship, Epistle

Detail:

There is a place where two lines come together and intersect... the Cross of Calvary.

This week's sermon

We are pretty good at building walls. We draw lines and separate ourselves from others without much effort. We see the whole world as “us and them” without batting an eye—usually before we are even aware it’s happening. Jesus has another way. Jesus destroyed division. To enter into the way of Jesus is to leave behind the lines and the walls and the barriers. Sinners and saints, Gentiles and Jews, women and men, every race and nation—the cross of Calvary is an intersection where they all come together. On that cross hung a man who was also God. In Jesus, we are no longer divided but one and united with God forever.

About This Series: From Me to We: A Study in Ephesians

Is life all about Me? A Me lifestyle is about the isolated individual—my ideas, my agenda, my concerns alone. From this vantage point, life is about making Me the best I can be. But faith in Jesus Christ draws us into We, where there is a relationship with God and others. We means setting our opinions aside and submitting in faith to Jesus Christ. We means being part of a family—a community of faith, united across racial and social lines. Journey with us from Me to We as we study the book of Ephesians this summer.
