Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:11-13
We need to remember that we are all saints with a past, we need to remember that we were all unsaved sinners just like the world. When you’re Born Again and filled with the Holy Spirit, its easy to get disgusted with this world. It’s easy to feel remorse , even anger towards unsaved people, however we must remember we were once just like them! And we can use our past and our testimonies, to share people the good news of Jesus Christ!
We must remember that at one time we were without Christ! Hopefully this seems impossible to comprehend, but at one time we were prodigal children. We were the lost sheep without a Shepherd. When your reconciled back to God through Christ, it makes you realize how great our God is. Because there is no hope without Christ! There is no possibility of eternal life without Jesus, all our hope is in our great Lord and Savior!
We were once far away from God, we were dead in our sins, unable to stand in the presence of our Holy Father. However because of the price Christ paid on the cross, The Lord has reconciled us back to God. This is why its called Amazing Grace!
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: Ephesians 2:14-16
Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) and we can’t have peace without Christ, why? Because without Christ, you are at war with God, you are at war with the Holy Spirit, living in the flesh , dead in your sins. But Christ paid the ransom for your sins on the cross, and made you a new man by the Holy Spirit. You are at peace with God through Jesus Christ, because The Lord paid it all!
There is no other way to peace and reconciliation without Jesus Christ! If your looking for peace today, look for Jesus Christ, and look at the cross and what Christ accomplished for you there! We are Born Again through Jesus Christ our Lord and the Holy Spirit, Amen!
