It seems to me that this entire passage is based upon unity in Christ. This passage seems to go hand in hand with Romans 11, which speaks of the Gentiles being grafted in. The concept of Christ as our peace really stood out to me. It convicted me of how I interact with other Christians who may have a different understanding of Scripture than I do on particular issues (i.e. election, eschatology, etc.) It reminded me that Christ has torn down the walls of hostility and now we are all members of the same body with Christ as our cornerstone.
