That We May Be One (Part 3) 

 

Ephesians 2:14-18

 

Big Truth: Jesus removed what kept us divided so that we can be united in what keeps us together.

 

What kept us divided?

  • Jesus removed the dividing barrier. (v. 14)
  • Jesus removed the sin barrier. (v. 16)

 

What keeps us together?

  • We have the same Savior. (v. 14a)
  • We have the same identity. (v. 15)
  • We are part of the same body. (v. 16)

 

  • We share a common __. (v. 17)

 

  • We have __ to the Father in the same __. (v. 18)

 

Just as the Apostle Paul stresses “in Christ” to indicate a Christian’s __ and __, he also stresses “in the Spirit” to emphasize a Christian’s __. The Christian life is not lived by our ability; it is empowered by the Holy Spirit.

 

  • We have the same __. (v. 18)
