14 Christ himself is our peace. He has made Jews and Gentiles into one group of people. He has destroyed the hatred that was like a wall between us. 15 Through his body on the cross, Christ set aside the law with all its commands and rules. He planned to create one new people out of Jews and Gentiles. He wanted to make one peace between them. 16 He planned to bring both Jews and Gentiles back to God as one body. He planned to do this through the cross. On that cross, Christ put to death their hatred toward one another. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away. He also preached peace to those who were near. 18 Through Christ we both come to the Father by the power of one Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, you are our peace. Because of your death and resurrection, God gives us life even when we are dead in sin. Now we are called to follow you. Help us sing your praise in all that we do and say.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
