The Blood is Stronger than the Barriers (Ephesians 2:11–13)

Ephesians Exposition

Racism has long been, and ever is, a blight on humanity. John MacArthur correctly notes, “It is a part of sinful human nature to build barriers that shut out other people.” Paul reveals that these barriers can only be removed by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:13). The blood of Jesus Christ is stronger than any and all barriers produced by sinful man. Unfortunately, Christians, who should hold tenaciously to this truth and therefore who should be at the forefront of proclaiming, practising and promoting reconciliation often respond unhelpfully. So what is the solution to ethnic disharmony, to the evil and ugly barriers that humanity, in sin, has constructed between people and between peoples? We find it in Ephesians 2:11–22. Paul asserts that it is the blood of Jesus Christ that is able to cure the world of hostility. In the case of the cross of the Christ, blood is thicker than hatred. The blood of Christ is stronger than the sinful barriers of man.
