Breaking Down the Walls of Hostility

February 26, 2017

It seems as though there is so much division, hurt, and hostility in our world today. We were made in God’s image, and yet we often harbor feeling of racism, distrust, and even hate toward one another. But there is always hope in God’s Word! In this timely and healing message, Pastor Dudley Rutherford shows us that these issues were addressed more than 2,000 years ago when the Apostle Paul wrote Ephesians 2:11-22. Three times in this text we find the word “peace.” Jesus is our peace. He is “making peace.” And He preached peace. We learn that peace is not the absence of conflict, but encompasses unity and oneness.
