Working On A Building

Last week we saw that once we were dead, but now Christ has made us alive.  Today, we see another result of the salvation that Christ gives us.

Since God  has saved us through Christ, made us alive and prepared us for good works, He now wants to unify us in Him.  Once we  were not separated from Christ.  It doesn’t matter if we were Gentile or Jew, we all faced that same separation.  We were excluded from Israel and strangers to the covenants of Israel.  We had no hope and were without God in the world.  But Christ intervened.

He had brought us close through His blood.  He became our peace, by uniting both God’s chosen, Israel, and Gentile.  Instead of there being Jew and Gentile, He has created a new group, the Church.  He broke down the barrier.  He abolished the enmity that the Law brings.  He reconciled us and created one new man through the cross.

Now we are no longer strangers and aliens.  Instead we are now fellow citizens, we are part of God’s household.  We have been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets.  Christ is our cornerstone.  The whole building is being grown into the temple of the Lord.  We also are being built into a temple of God in the Spirit.

God is a master craftsman.  He is working on a building, one in which all his children can live in.
