Everything in Jesus: Peace

Ephesians 2:14-18 – Paul answers what kind of peace is accomplished “by the blood of Christ Jesus” and “in Christ Jesus.”

In Christ, there are two kinds of peace: horizontal and vertical. To accomplish peace, Christ does three things: breaks down (14b), wipes out (15a), makes new (15b). 

In order for there to be reconciliation to God, the cross had to deal with mutual hostility. Christ literally “killed the hostility” (16) Image: the One who was slain is the slayer too. Acceptance with God has nothing to do with ethnicity or family heritage – it is through faith in Christ crucified alone.
