A Solid Foundation

We are part of the household of God, and every house needs a foundation. Ephesians 2:20-22 paints a picture of our role. God's household is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone. On this solid foundation we are joined together to build a holy temple in the Lord, a dwelling place for God. This is an awesome picture of the glory of God being praised through His created followers. God created us, saved us, and made us into a temple for Himself. We will ultimately glorify Him together with the apostles and prophets as one complete household designed only to praise, worship, honor, adore, and magnify the God, the One who called us before the foundation of the world.

Our God is an awesome God, worthy of all praise, worthy of all glory. He saved us from sin and eternal death, to be built into a holy temple of worship to Him, where He can dwell in His glory.

Praise God for His Glory.
