Chapter Two, Lesson Three
BUILT TOGETHER IN CHRIST Page
** As you look back over today's passage, what do you see for which you
find your heart to be thankful?
1) We have been given peace.
2) We have access to a Holy God.
3) We are no longer strangers and aliens to Him.
4) We are members of His household.
5) We are growing - He is not finished with us yet.
6) God is pleased to dwell in us!
** Earlier in our study we asked the question, "For what purpose
did God create His church?" How would you answer that now?
So that He could dwell in His church, which He has made pure through
the blood of Jesus Christ.
cf. Ephesians 5:27
** How should the reality of God Himself dwelling in you effect your
everyday actions and attitudes.
Since He is with me at all times, I need to strive to make Him comfortable
within my clean heart that He has created. By not feeding my flesh,
I can walk by the Spirit and be pleasing to Him.
cf. 2Corinthians 5:9
** It will always be our "ambition" to apply the truth of God's
word to our daily walk with Him.
For today we need to prayerfully consider the significance of having
been "Built Together in Christ". Are we willing to live each
day with a heightened awareness of our gracious God's presence in our
life? Imagine walking through your day, side by side with your best
friend, and totally ignoring him or her - never speaking to them and
even denying your friendship by the things you say and do. How much
worse is it when we ignore the One who gave His life for us so that
He might dwell in our hearts by faith?
Let's thank Him for allowing us to be His building and commit our way
to His glory.
