Peacemakers In A Hostile Word

Young Yi

Romans 9:14-21

What makes us, the Church, different than the world? Being a Christian doesn’t inherently make us better people, it is only in Christ that we are made different. Young Yi reminds us that through Christ and His selfless sacrifice on the cross, hostility between us and God has been removed and we are free to follow His ways as we reflect the peace and sacrifice that He showed us to those around us.
