14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and
has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by
abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and
regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man
out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in this one body to
reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he
put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to
you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
“No foreigner is to enter the
barriers surrounding the
sanctuary. He who is caught
will have himself to blame for
his death which will follow.”

19 Consequently, you are no longer
foreigners and aliens, but fellow
citizens with God's people and
members of God's household, 20
built on the foundation of the
apostles and prophets, with Christ
Jesus himself as the chief
cornerstone. 21 In him the whole
building is joined together and rises
to become a holy temple in the Lord.
22 And in him you too are being built
together to become a dwelling in
which God lives by his Spirit.
26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus,
27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed
yourselves with Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free,
male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
2. We are the SAME and EQUAL before God.
• No Race - Neither Jew nor Greek
• No Social Class - Neither Slave nor Free
• No Gender Preference - Neither Male nor
• No……… age restriction,…
3. We are ALL DIFFERENT but still UNDER ONE
LORD - physical distinctions, gifting, skill-
sets and different roles.
4. We share THE COMMON PURPOSE to live
a life in FAITHFUL OBEDIENCE to our KING
We HONOUR and CELEBRATE our diversity.
We are to LOVE and ACCEPT our neighbour.
However, God does not teach us to accept
EVERY BEHAVIOUR as EQUAL and GOOD.
The Bible speaks against ACTIONS/BEHAVIOURS
that DEVASTATES RELATIONSHIPS with ourselves,
with others, with God and creation.
