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

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers,

but fellow citizens with God’s people

and also members of His household,

built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone.

.

In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.

And in Him you too are being built together

to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.

.

– Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

Christ Jesus is the chief cornerstone and this indicates His strength.

The Church is founded on this strong, stable bedrock;

this cornerstone is what gives it its solidity.

Every faithful Christian,

every living stone of this temple of God,

must stay fixed on the solid cornerstone of Christ by cooperating in his or her own sanctification.

.

God gives the Holy Spirit so that we can be joined to the body of Christ (the Church, the Christian community).

Our new life in the Spirit allows us to be individually strengthened in faith,

to be more closely united with other Christians in the Church

and to experience a communion with them in the Spirit.

QUOTE…

.

""The Church will shake if its foundation shakes, but can Christ shake?

As long as Christ does not shake, so shall the Church never weaken until the end of time"”

.

– St. Augustine

PRAYER…

.

O Lord, my God, I fall to my knees and thank You for Your incredible and boundless love.

Your power is beyond my comprehension.

Your awesome holiness is beyond my understanding.

Yet Your infinite grace is mine because of Your love which cost You so much.

.

Thank You for building me up to become a dwelling place for Your Holy Spirit.

Thank You. I am not worthy Lord. Thank You Lord!
