Today I’m going to be posting on Ephesians 2:11-13 which says,
“Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12 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. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”
Paul is telling the Ephesians to remember that they once were separate from Christ by their sin, and excluded from citizenship Israel, or the Kingdom of God. He reminds the people that they were without hope because they were without God. However, they were saved by Christ, who brought them into God’s kingdom with His own blood. They were saved by the blood of Christ when they were without hope, and when they were undeserving.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
This is a wonderful example of what God has done for you. He sent His only son, Jesus, to die on a cross with all the sin of the world on Him, for you! All the wrong you have done has been washed away by the blood of Christ. You are now a full citizen of God’s Kingdom, and you have brought into the fold of God. All you have to do is believe in what Jesus has done. Do you believe?
