Today’s message in Pastor Dan’s series from Ephesians continues in chapter 2 as we consider how all people have the common problem of sin irregardless of race or ethnicity . Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.
Christ’s Great Peace Mission
The only “eternal covenant” that has lasted and that will last,
is the one made by the eternal God, sealed by the blood of Jesus Christ!
Jesus Christ is the only peace maker giving a peace mission!
