We Have Rights and Privileges as God's Children

Bible Verse Ephesians 2:19-22

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Commentary:

Paul continues his discourse on Christians becoming one in Christ. We are no longer strangers and as Paul explains we are no longer foreigners to God. But we have become members of the household of God. In ancient times foreigners had no rights or privileges in the country they were visiting. Because they were strangers, non-citizens they were not recognized as having any rights. So Paul is telling us that we were once foreigners in the eyes of God; however because of Jesus we have become children of God with full rights and privileges. Therefore the cornerstone and the foundation of the church is Jesus. The church is built on Jesus and the knowledge of Him.

Godly men inspired by the Holy Spirit wrote the scriptures as they taught others of the Gospel. And through them the Holy Spirit laid down the foundation of the church based on the cornerstone of Christ Jesus our Lord. And it is this foundation which forms the basis of our spiritual growth. And it's the knowledge of Jesus which teaches us how to live the Christian life. And as we build ourselves on this foundation we grow together with other believers into the church of God. The church is the bride of Christ. And because of our faith in Jesus which is the grace of God every single one of us who claim the name of Jesus become the dwelling place of God because the Holy Spirit takes us residence in our hearts.

Our Purpose in Life is to Follow Christ

1st John 5:19-21

To Trust in Our Idols in Foolishness

Psalm: 115:4-8

Their idols are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell; They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat. hose who make them are like them; So is everyone who trusts in them.
