"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Ephesians 2:11-22
For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.

Every gender divide.
Every racial divide.
Every economic divide.
Every religious divide.
Every parental divide.
Every neighborly divide.
Every vocational divide.
Every marital divide.
Every sexual divide.
Every political divide.
Every national divide.
Every church divide.
Every psychological divide.

Every single divide has been destroyed by the peace that Christ has offered both parties through is body making reconciliation through his broken body and through the blood of the cross.  And here we are bickering, fighting, name calling, throwing bombs on the other side, demanding our rights and that we are right. Paul refuses to let the miraculous go unsaid. The miracle of Jews and Gentiles breaking bread. The miracle of zealots and tax collectors washing feet. The miracle of men and women serving and submitting to one another in the new humanity. Join us as we worship the Christ who has broken down the dividing walls of hostility!
