“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Those were the words of US President Ronald Reagan on June 12, 1987. He spoke of the Berlin Wall, built by East Germany in 1961, to keep residents from escaping into Democratic West Berlin. On November 9, 1989, East Germany announced that all citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin This paved the way for German reunification, on October 1990. The Wall was demolished in 1992. This incident is a reminder of a much greater wall between our righteous God and unrighteous mankind, which came down when Christ died on the cross. Paul the Apostle wrote, “For He Himself is our peace…and has broken down the middle wall of separation… that He might reconcile … through the cross…for through Him we … have access to the Father.” .
