The Wall Is Gone

Ephesians 2:14-15

Memorable moments witnessed by watchful observers tend to leave vivid impressions, and one such memorable moment, is the crumbling of the Berlin Wall in November of 1989. People in the West were not only shocked but deeply encouraged as they saw that symbol of communist oppression and division systematically dismantled by an angry mob of West Germans. A similar “wall” of even greater symbolic weight was kicked down by Jesus Christ 2,000 years prior when he shed his blood on the cross. That wall, which Paul calls the “enmity” and subsequently describes as the “law of commandments contained in ordinances” separated Jew and Gentile, leaving the whole sweep of humanity on the outside of the covenant looking in. But Christ, by his cross, toppled that wall and made those two groups, Jews and Gentiles, into one new man through his blood who together might be partakers of grace. Praise God, the wall is gone!
