Passion Week: Selected Readings 1

Today I would like to share with you two significant passages speaking of Christ's passion.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence," Ephesians 1:7-8

And also in Ephesians we read:

For He Himself is our peace who has made both one, and has has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father." Ephesians 2:14-18

Christ is our Peace, Righteousness, and Mediator. Praise His name this Easter!
