Remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility. (Eph 2:12-14 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, thank You for the sacrifice of Your life that made it possible for us to be in relationship with You. You abolished the hostility and barrier that once separated us from You and from each other. Help me recognize the barriers and hostilities that still exist between others (though not of You) and use me as a “connector” to bring Your peace to them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
