PEACE - What the Church Can Mean To You
(Part II)

Salvation gives peace of mind and is found only through reconciliation with God.

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:(Eph. 2:14-16)

There are several things that should be clear to the honest and sincere searcher in that scripture. First, Jesus Christ is our peace. There is no peace to be obtained without Him. There is no peace to be gained outside of Him. He has made it possible for man to be reconciled unto God by the means of His cross. But the place where the reconciliation is achieved is in the one body. Earlier in the letter to the Ephesians, the apostle Paul has explained that the body referred to here is the Church of the Lord (Eph. 1:22-23). We can see then that man is reconciled unto God in the body, the body is the church, therefore, man is reconciled unto God in the church. For us to gain the peace for which we search, we must be reconciled unto God, and this reconciliation takes place only in the church. The church can mean that you can be reconciled unto God bringing greater peace and joy into your life.
