"Reconciled People of Christ"
'Basic Training for Followers of Christ
In our human condition, we were once separated from Christ.
Therefore, remember that 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) 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..
But through his mercy, we are all (Jew and Gentile) reconciled as one
with Christ because of the cross.
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought
near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made
the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of
hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and
regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out
of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of
them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their
hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and
peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to
the Father by one Spirit.
We are God's accomplishment -- one family, one nation, fellow
citizens with God's people.
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow
citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on
the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself
as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together

pure HOPE’s Director of Parenting, Dan Martin and Cincinnati Advisory
Board Member, Sean McKay join featured speaker Jon Kitna, former NFL
Quarterback at this conference on becoming a real man in today’s world.
Leading a life of sexual integrity is one of the greatest challenges men
face today. The relentless stream of sexual temptation that is channeled
into our homes and communities through the Internet, television
shows, movies, magazines and countless other means wreaks havoc on
Christian men. The challenge is even greater for our young people who
are growing up in such an age. While it’s impossible to avoid sexual
temptations, it is possible to manage them. Higher Ground can help!
This one-day conference, featuring keynote speaker Jon Kitna, former
NFL Quarterback, and multiple breakout seminars led by excellent
teachers, will provide Christian men and teens with practical tools,
resources and encouragement to help them lead lives of integrity and
honor in the face of sexual temptation and destructive messages that
bombard them daily.
