Walls are designed to separate, and walls can easily represent the fallen condition of mankind. Original sin placed a wall between us and God, between us in paradise. Daily sin erects walls between friends, coworkers, schoolmates, family members, and even nations. Thankfully, our Lord is a peacemaker not a divider, and God intended Jesus to be the ambassador of His divine treaty. After centuries of despair, Jesus appeared on the scene, sent to do for us what we could never do for ourselves and would refuse to do even if we could. He tore down that wall separating us from God, signed the treaty with His blood, and three days later gloriously ratified it. The result…peace, sweet peace!
