Passage: Ephesians 2:14-18
Everyone knows what it means to feel alienation, perhaps from a once close friend or even from a family member. Alienation is descriptive of the human condition since the fall, between races, ethnic groups, economic classes, and the like. But the greatest alienation we have suffered is from God, as the fellowship we had in the garden through our head, Adam, has been replaced by enmity and rebellion. This seemingly hopeless condition has a solution, and Paul continues this amazing passage on the church by telling us exactly how Jesus Christ accomplished reconciliation for us through the cross.
