Peace With God
A Sermon on Ephesians 2:17
And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. (ESV)
Two interpretations of this passage; the Gospel is for all; not just the Jews; man's fundamental need is peace with God; the mire and the dirt of man in sin; the Jews' wrong understanding of the Law; the necessity of preaching the Gospel to all men; Christ; and Christ alone; offers peace to all who see their need of it.
