Observe that it is human nature to look for ways to divide from others. Employers divide themselves from employees, team leaders divide themselves from team members. Long timers divide themselves from newcomers. Homeownwers divide themselves from mere renters, board members divide themselves from mere members and members from non-members. More obviously white people divide themselves from black people and black people from white people, and then there are brown and red and yellow people. In the church clergy divides itself from laity and laity (average people in the pews) from clergy, Baptist from Methodist from Catholic and so on. Famous people from unknowns and rich people from poor people and winners from losers. Jack Nicklaus the golfing legend stated that he does what he does to "separate hinmself from the masses." Always looking for a way to splinter off and build a wall that's human nature. But Jesus is not like that, He is our peace who has broken down every wall (Eph 2 v 14, Colossians 3 v 11) and He and His are always looking for ways to unite. He is our peace in the sense of harmony and union and not merely absence of trouble or conflict or incident.
