Salvation Is For All, The
Racial relations roles Dont forget that you are Gentiles. In fact, you used to be called uncircumcised by those who take pride in being circumcised. At that time you did not know about Christ. You were foreigners to the people of Israel, and you had no part in the promises that God had made to them.
You were living in this world without hope and without God,
and you were far from God. But Christ offered his lifes blood as a sacrifice and brought you near God. Christ has made peace between Jews and Gentiles, and he has united us by breaking down the wall of hatred that separated us. Christ gave his own body to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands.
He even brought Jews and Gentiles together as though we were only one person, when he united us in peace. On the cross Christ did away with our hatred for each other. He also made peace between us and God by uniting Jews and Gentiles in one body. Christ came and preached peace to you Gentiles, who were far from God, and peace to us Jews, who were near God.

And because of Christ, all of us can come to the Father by the same Spirit.19 You Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens with everyone else who belongs to the family of God. You are like a building with the apostles and prophets as the foundation and with Christ as the most important stone.

Christ is the one who holds the building together and makes it grow into a holy temple for the Lord. And you are part of that building Christ has built as a place for Gods own Spirit to live. Ephesians 2:11-22
God treated me with kindness.
His power worked in me, and it became my job to spread the good news. I am the least important of all Gods people. But God was kind and chose me to tell the Gentiles that because of Christ there are blessings that cannot be measured. God, who created everything, wanted me to help everyone understand the mysterious plan that had always been hidden in his mind. Ephesians 3:7-9 Racial relations
All are same in Christ 9 And stop lying to each other. You have given up your old way of life with its habits. Each of you is now a new person. You are becoming more and more like your Creator, and you will understand him better. It doesnt matter if you are a Greek or a Jew, or if you are circumcised or not. You may even be a barbarian or a Scythian, and you may be a slave or a
free person. Yet Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us. Colossians 3:9-11
