The Personal Residence of Jesus Christ
And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. Ephesians 2:22
If you were to describe yourself in terms of a building what kind of building would you be? Would you be a skyscraper, a mall, a business office, a school, a sports arena, or a humble abode?
Did you know that as Christians we are supposed to be one specific building with our fellow believers?
Ephesians 2 talks about how Christ is now including everyone not just Israel into the family of God. In verse 19 the chapter begins to talk about how we are no longer foreigners but fellow citizens with the saints in the household of God. That we are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ as the cornerstone. We are all being built together joined by Christ.
Today examine your life. What kind of building do you look like? A building is categorized by what it contains. Is your life so consumed with work that you look like a business office? Is it so consumed with clothes that you look like a mall? Invite Christ to dwell within you today and begin to look like the personal residence of Christ.
