“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Ephesians 2:19-22

TODAY’S WORD…

.

So now you are no longer strangers and foreigners.

You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people.

You are members of God’s family.

.

Together, we are His house,

built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets.

And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus Himself.

.

We are carefully joined together in Him,

becoming a holy temple for the Lord.

Through Him you are also being made part

of this dwelling where God lives by His Spirit.

.

– Ephesians 2:19-22 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

God gives the Holy Spirit

so that we can be joined to the body of Christ,

that is to the Church,

to the Christian community.

.

A new life in the Spirit

will allow you to be more closely united with other Christians in the Church

and to experience a communion with them in the Spirit.

.

The head of the Church is Christ Himself,

and in His Church are assembled the children of God,

who are to live as brothers and sisters, united by love.

.

Grace, faith, hope, charity and the action of the Holy Spirit

are invisible realities

which forge the links bringing together all the members of the Church.

.

If the physical body of Christ

is the true temple of God because Christ is the Son of God,

the Church can also be seen as God’s true temple,

because it is the mystical body of Christ.

.

Every faithful Christian, every living stone of this temple of God,

must, through a desire to become holy and more like Jesus,

stay fixed on the solid cornerstone of Christ,

and do as He says, accepting His will and commandments.

This is how we become

part of this dwelling where God lives by His Spirit.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, draw me closer to Jesus,

that I may become one with Him.
