Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 2:11-22 (day seven)
“In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.”  (v 21)
It is something that the world has been unable to do.  For all of our efforts and hopes, the goal of unity has eluded us.  The world is divided.  Shia against Sunni.  Black against white.  Congress against the President.  Long, sad story of the planet.  Only Christ can heal the human heart and create peace.  He joins people together, builds people together into a temple for the praise and presence of God.  It is the unique vision of New Testament Christianity, those who surrender ego and pride to Christ, discover and experience a supernatural and beautiful peace with others who have come to God in the same way.  “Peace on earth, good will to men”, the angels sang on the first Christmas Eve.  What people had dreamed of so long was finally possible.  In Him.
