For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. -Ephesians 2:14-22
God of peace, I worship You today. Jesus the Cornerstone, I praise You. For through Your crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection, I can have peace. Peace with God, peace with others, peace in all circumstances. Thank You that my life is built on the foundation of Jesus Christ and that the family of believers—that is Your church is being built together into a dwelling place for God by Your Spirit.
