Ephesians 2:13 | Remember: Wherever the KING is, that’s where the KINGDOM is. We have been brought INTO Christ Jesus (See Romans 6:3-5), and HE has been brought INTO us (see Galatians 2:20)!
Ephesians 2:14-16 | When we pray “Thy Kingdom Come” we are praying for the KING Himself to be our peace! We are not praying for walls to be built, but that He would tear them down! He doesn’t put burdens on us, He carries them! His mission is one of Reconciliation, and so is ours. The mission to create one new humanity! See Romans 5:1-11.
Ephesians 3:19 | We were once the alien and the foreigner. But now, through Jesus, we have been made citizens and more: MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD! We are His Adopted Children! See Romans 8:15-17.
Ephesians 3:20-22 | God’s Word is the foundation of this new building, not a “church building” but THE CHURCH BUILDING! God’s new multi-ethnic, international Jesus community! Rising to become a holy temple in the Lord! The dwelling place for His Spirit!
