For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, see also Eph 2:4-24/
