Ephesians 2:

We use to follow the ways of the world and the sinful nature, but God has saved us by his gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  Our job is to do good works in Jesus which God has prepared us to do before time.  Gentiles who did not have the birthright of Israel and were not part of the covenant of the promise have now been made citizens and part of the covenant through faith in Jesus Christ.  Israel and the Jewish Law is now irrelevant to God, God's Spirit, and God's kingdom.  Jesus through his death demolished the division and made both Jews and Gentiles one by faith in Jesus Christ.  Unless the Jews and Palestinians accept Christ and reject their earthly laws, they will have no peace because Jesus is the peace against the division caused by earthly laws. 

Ephesians 3:

Paul is a prisoner of Christ for the sake of the Gentiles.  God's mystery that has been revealed in this generation by God's Spirit to the apostles and prophets is that both the Jews and Gentiles are one in Jesus Christ.  Our job is to teach and reveal this hidden mystery in God that all are free and equal through the faith in Jesus Christ by the gift of God's grace regardless of race, age, gender, or religion.  God's intent is to reveal this mystery to all rulers and authorities thought the church according to God's eternal purpose.  So God wants unity, peace, and freedom for all people, not division for wars in order to get more resources.  Paul prayed that we be rooted in faith in Jesus Christ and in love.

Ephesians 4:

Christians should be humble and gentle, as well as be patient and have love for each other.  We must maintain unity in God's Spirit through peace.  There is one body, one Spirit, One Lord, one hope, one faith, one baptism, one God, and one father of all things created.  Christians can no longer live like Gentiles, who are separated from God due to their ignorance, levels of thinking and understanding, and hardened hearts.  Gentiles had no conscience and indulge in all kinds of impurities for continuous greed and lust for more (money, power, & status).  We have being renewed in Christ and have put off the old self that was corrupted by deceit away from God.  Be truthful and honest.  Never hold on to anger for too long.  Do not let anger lead you to sin nor give Satan a foothold.  We are to work with our own hands (and head) in order to contribute to our community and have something to offer those who are in need. Only provide constructive criticism in order to build your listeners. Get rid of bitterness, anger, fights, slander, and malice in order not to offend the Holy Spirit of God.  Be compassionate and forgive like Christ forgave you.
