Daily Encouragement: Ephesians 2:12-18

Do we have peace in the news? No! Do we have peace in the Weather? Certainly Not! Do we have peace in anything? No! Then the question becomes, Where does our peace come from!

Our peace comes from Jesus Christ. Our promise comes from Ephesians 2:4-10.

Ephesians 2:4-10 states, “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

This is an amazing promise. God, in his great mercy, sent his only son to die a painful death on the cross for our sins and rose on the third day to give us a new hope in Christ Jesus. Now, When we accept Jesus Christ, we have a beacon of hope in this unprecedented time. Our peace also comes from Jesus Christ who is our living hope.

Ephesians 2:12-17 states, “Remember that at that time you were separate Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 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, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace. and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.”

This passage is indicating that Jesus Christ is our peace and Jesus Christ can combat the hostility in the world today. It reminds me of a passage–Philippians 4:6-7.

Philippians 4:6-7 states, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

This is an amazing promise! God is our peace and will guard our hearts and mind in Christ Jesus. Remember, Jesus Christ is our peace!

Tune in tomorrow for another daily encouragement!
