Enmity of the Church

KIF Spring 2011 Sermon Series - Ephesians

ephesians 2 11 13 remember
Ephesians 2:11-13Remember

11 Therefore, REMEMBERthat formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 

12 REMEMBER that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 

13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Ephesians 2:8,9

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

ephesians 2 8 91
Ephesians 2:8,9

Seeing that, since, Because

Unmerited favor

Rescued

faith

a course of action,

Putting confidence in, letting go, letting the object,

that requires a cognitive choice

- a selection of an object,

and this salvation, it is the gift of God—

Not of your own doing, own striving

vocal self-praise or claims to superiority over others

Boast of what?

8 For

it is by grace

you have been saved,

through faith—

and this is not from yourselves, it is

the gift of God—

9not by works,

so that no one can boast.

Ephesians 2:14-18

14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,

15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,

Jewish Law

“a disproportionate amount of rabbinic attention was devoted to three areas of the law: dietary rules, Sabbath-keeping and circumcision. This was in spite of the fact that rabbis would not have claimed these as the central aspects of God\'s will for humanity. They knew that the essence of the law was the shema—the loving of God with heart and soul and strength. “

Ephesians 2:14,15

The ordinances produced

  • pride being the follower,
  • A threshold to the non-believer,
  • A method to judge the non-believer

14 For He Himself is our peace,

who made both groups into one

and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,

15 by abolishing in His flesh

the enmity,

which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances,

so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man,

matthew 15
Matthew 15

1 Then some Pharisees and scribes *came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, 2 “Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” 3 And He answered and said to them, “Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said, ‘HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER,’ and, ‘HE WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER IS TO BE PUT TO DEATH.’ 5 But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever I have that would help you has been given to God,” 6 he is not to honor his father or his mother.’ And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you:    8 ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. 9 ‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’”

Mark 7

17 When he left the crowd and went into the house, his disciples asked him to explain this saying. 18 "You are no more intelligent than the others," Jesus said to them. "Don\'t you understand? Nothing that goes into you from the outside can really make you unclean, 19 because it does not go into your heart but into your stomach and then goes on out of the body." (In saying this, Jesus declared that all foods are fit to be eaten.)
