TEXT: EPHESIANS 2:13-19
INTRODUCTION: Last week, we discussed the first part of the significance of the death of Christ. Today we shall examine the second part. Chief amongst the reasons we adduced was the atonement for our sins and subsequent reversal of the resultant penalty of death.
This expression of love by God gave us access to His presence in Christ's name without discrimination of our colour, tribe, race or geographical location. This was symbolically expressed by the tearing of the veil in the temple at his death.
In addition, His death redeemed us from curses, destroyed the hostility between races and gave marriage its deepest meaning
May the blessings resulting from the death and resurrection of Christ abide with us now and forever in Jesus Name. Amen
