Manna For Today: Monday, April 3, 2017
Ephesians 2:16 – Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.
While sometimes difficult to imagine, the way forward is very often found by going backward. In a world so divided with so much hatred, it is not difficult to forget what motivates us, both now and in the future, is what happened in time past.
I remember a song I learned as a child: “At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light and the burden of my heart rolled away. It was there by faith I received my sight and now I am happy all the day.”
Let’s go back to the cross where Christ made available to everyone the ability to enter the most Holy Place, once reserved just for the Jews. It is at the foot of the cross that all people of every race or creed set aside differences that separate and divide and instead we unite in a spirit of unity and a bond of peace.
Find that place today and practice loving, serving, giving and seeing the cross way. Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
