Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 2:14


2:14 For he is our peace - Not only as he purchased it, but as he is the very bond and centre of union. He who hath made both - Jews and gentiles, one church. The apostle describes, The conjunction of the gentiles with Israel, #Eph 2:14|,15. And, The conjunction of both with God, #Eph 2:15 |- 18. Each description is subdivided into two parts. And the former part of the one, concerning abolishing the enmity, answers the former part of the other; the latter part of the one, concerning the evangelical decrees, the latter part of the other. And hath broken down the middle wall of partition - Alluding to that wall of old, which separated the court of Israel from the court of the gentiles. Such a wall was the ceremonial law, which Christ had now taken away.

    Who ever left their comment for me : I am correcting your thought about me : I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior !! That day I got saved !! Jesus Christ is my Lord ! He let's me know from the time I got saved of things that need to be taken care of and put out of my life : This Lordship that I have with my Lord is an on going fellowship !!! I have been with my Lord and Savior for 35 years and through out those years Through His leadership and Lordship since I got saved :I have with my Lord's help been able to rid of many things that were not of God : For the remainder of my life here on earth , there will be a continuance of obeying my Lord till it is time for me to go home. I did nothing to get saved : I received His salvation that is in Christ Jesus and in receiving His salvation I received His Lordship as well.

    John 3:16 For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ that whosoever believes in him shall not be perished but have eternal life. What a loving God we serve. Thanks to the blood of Jesus that shed for us by his blood we are forgiven and redeemed. HE PAID THE PRICE FOR US. OUR JOB NOW IS TO PRAISE HIM AND WORSHIP HIM ONLY FOR HE IS WORTHY. AMEN

    Ephesians is the greatest love letter from our heavenly father to the body of believers.
