Ephesians, Chapter Two, Lesson Two

BROUGHT NEAR IN CHRIST            Page 6
V.16 (Cont'd.)

** And now, what are the two different situations?

1) The enmity that exists between sinful men has been done away with because of the peace available through faith in Jesus Christ.

2) The enmity between man and God has been reconciled because of the blood of Christ making the payment for our sin.

EXTRICATE

** What have you seen today about the Biblical description of your life before knowing Jesus Christ?

We were: Christless, stateless, friendless, hopeless and Godless!

DELINEATE

** What effect does your deliverance through the blood of Christ have on your life?

It puts us at peace with our God and with all of our brothers and sisters in Christ. It should create in us an every growing love for the brethren and for our Lord Who made it all possible!

EVALUATE

** If we are going to be fair with today's passage, we must ask ourselves - "Do I have any bias or prejudice concerning others? Am I uncomfortable around certain kinds of Christians because I think that they are different?"

ACTIVATE

** To apply what we have seen, realizing the tremendous cost involved, am I willing to live out my destiny?

I have been "Brought Near in Christ" and my beloved Savior would have me to show His love to the brethren and to be diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
cf. Ephesians 4:3

Let's commit to the Lord our desire to do just that!
