The dividing wall broken

RE Verse reading–Acts11:1-26 (day seven)  “If God gave them the same gift that He gave us. . .who was I to hinder God?”  (vs 17)  “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”  Perhaps you remember President Reagan’s famous words at the Berlin Wall.  They remind me of  Acts 11.  God was tearing down the legal wall that had, for centuries, divided Jew from Gentile.  For the first time since the Tower of Babel, the world had an opportunity for true unity and equality.  How inspiring!  How hopeful!  It is ironic that many in our day portray religion as essentially divisive.  Christ is actually our ONE opportunity to be united.   “He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall. . .making the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross”  (Ephesians 2:14-16)  Most of us live behind walls.  God breaks them down.
