ONE NEW HUMANITY
Jesus achieved a new thing for humanity: Animosity and hatred can be replaced with love and unity.
That comes about when someone receives Christ. Through Him both Jew and Gentile are formed into a new humanity. Ephesians 2'14-18 says:
"He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,
having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,
and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.
And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father".
"Looking unto Jesus,
the author and finisher of our faith,
“And the common people heard Him gladly," Mark 12'37.
Prayer. Father, thank you that Jesus is the Shepherd and Overseer of our souls and we can hear Him over and above any other.
Thank you, too, for giving us the Holy Spirit so we can possess, experience and rejoice in Christ's New Covenant Kingdom teachings and understandings.
