Ephesians 2 Part 2 – Brought Near and at Peace with God through Christ!
Can you remember what your life was like before you came to Christ? In vv.1-3 we learned that we were dead in our trespasses and sins, but God made us alive. But in this second part Paul tells the believers to think back on how far from God they really were. We were ‘aliens’, ‘strangers’, and ‘foreigners’ having no hope and without God and yet still here in this world! We knew nothing about all the special privileges that being a citizen of Israel could bring. We were far off (vv.11-13) at that time! ‘But now‘, Wow! That changes everything, because now we have been brought near by the blood of Christ, having FULL ACCESS to the Father!
