People everywhere long for peace, so why is it that we can’t have what we want? The Scriptures teach us that the answer lies within each human heart: sin has separated us from God, and we need to be reconciled to Him. Alistair Begg reminds us that peace with God is the foundation of reconciliation between people. When the local church displays what God has done, we demonstrate the harmony that can only be achieved through the Gospel.
11Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
