“As a Holy Temple” (Eph. 2:19-22)
Consequently, we are members of God's household, no longer foreigners and aliens. We used to be aliens, but now we are members of God’s family. We are now citizens of God’s kingdom. We are added into God’s family as its official members.
The community of God’s family is joined together with Christ’s love and peace. This is the reality of God’s kingdom. Church is realizing the fullness of God and testifying it in the world (Eph. 1:23).
This is what it means to be placed in this world as a holy temple. It cannot be invented by human effort. It is constructed by God, connected by Christ, and completed by the Holy Spirit.
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection:
1) The fullness of God is illustrated in a building. Take time to image: You are a part of it by Christ. What kind of picture do you see? What does God speak to you? What does he minister in you? What is your response?
2) Why do we lose our trust in God sometimes? What will you to build up your trust in him stronger and stronger?
3) Have you thought that God is mad you? Why did you think so? What was the situation? Listen to the conversation between Jesus and Peter (John 21:15-17). What does the Lord speak to you? Why is the fellowship with Jesus so important?
