Paul reminds his readers that the relevance of “who Jesus is” is found in the personal application of one’s faith. It is futile to deal with the deep theological aspects of Jesus if we are lacking in love for Him. We are challenged in this message to pinpoint a defining moment in our lives when we have been changed through God’s grace from beyond what we once were.
21And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, 23if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation7 under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
