SIH HALTAL ICON(Eph 2:15-16)  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

For the SIH devotional on this subject:


  1. Thank you for commenting on this verse. I have always had difficulty understanding what Paul was trying to say. I still do but I think you are saying that Gentiles and Jews are saved by the same means, the redemptive work of Christ. Paul’s reference to the law confuses me, unless he is saying that we are all saved by grace not by works. Just as Abrahams faith was counted as righteousness. Am I understanding this verse properly?

      Yeh you pretty much have it… I’m not sure if you sw my more lengthy posting on this verse found here:

      But basically what I am trying to say is that… there exists in the heart of lost men an “enmity” (a hatred and separation). This enmity exists because of the law – the law produces and reveals our sinfulness… it is this sinfulness that separates us (the “enmity”) from God.

      Christ came to the earth and allowed His flesh (physical body) to be abuse and murdered on our behalf. He did this to remove the separation (or enmity) that we experience due to our sins. The motive behind Christ’s dying for us… He desired for all of His people (both Jew and Gentile) to be united into His spiritual nation of Israel and to be at peace with Him.

      Yes we all, both Jew and Gentile are saved by by grace through faith in the work of Christ on the cross.

      This set of verses is certainly a mouth full, but it sure holds many blessings and truths for all of us! Lord bless you, Sheryl. Hope this helps a bit.
