Uncircumcised?!

Ephesians 2:11-13


Summary so far
Summary so far:

  • Chapter one: How God sees us and what He’s done to prove it.

  • Chapter two: Contrasting who we are with who we were to show how much it matters.

Circumcision
Circumcision:

  • Mark of those who are citizens and share in the covenant (v12)

  • In the body, done by men (v11)

  • Separator, mark of distinction


You were uncircumcised
You were uncircumcised:

  • You don’t fit in, you are aliens.

  • In terms of men, you aren’t much.

  • You lack something everyone else seems to have.

  • They’re right too!


The circumcision group
The circumcision group:

  • Think they’re more fit and moral than you.

  • They’re supposed to include you, but don’t.

  • They point out the distinctions.

  • Those who don’t fit in judge them too!


Jesus
Jesus:

  • Turns all the distinctions on their head.

  • Makes the lost the centre of things and puts the self-righteous to the side.

  • Hope in the world, brought near to God.

  • What do we do with distinctions?
