Today, there is still much resistance to the uniting of Jew and Gentile in Messiah as one new man. The Christian Church is afraid of being Judaized, and the Jews are afraid of being Christianized…
If we are not open to learn and blend Jewish and Gentile expressions and seek to heal this division, then the heart of God’s purpose, “one new man” will not happen. This division has become a major target for demonic attack, and as Paul states in Eph.6:12, that we are wrestling against powers of darkness, realizing the overall theme of the entire book of Ephesians, we can see, that this pertains to the Jew & Gentile in Messiah becoming one new man… (Nikirk Ministries)
My prayer today:
Lord, help us American believers to deny our traditions, pick up our crosses, and follow Your plans and purposes for us so that the creation of the one new man will come forth in You. (Based on Luke 9:23)
Join with me on Tuesday’s to pray and fast for the one new man to finally come forth in the Body of Christ.
…that he might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace (Ephesians 2:15)
