Are you in the Family?

Are You in the Family? Ephesians 2:17-22 Main Point: We are to embrace each other in Christ as God’s New Spiritual Family ; His living temple in which He dwells by His Spirit; and His instrument of reconciliation! 1. A new Family -God, not man, created the church as a living organism; a new family, not merely an organization. (verses 18-19) > Jesus, ‘I will build my church!’ Matthew 16:18 Galatians 3:26-28 *We must embrace each other in Christ as brothers and sisters in God’s new family. He gives us a new spiritual identity and belonging! We read also in verse 20, that this new family is a household ‘built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone.’ So are you in this new Family, God’s living household, the church?! Romans 10:9-10 2. A living Temple – We, the church together, are a dwelling/habitation in which God lives by His Spirit! verses 21-22 3. An Instrument of Reconciliation - God created the church to be His instrument of reconciliation and redemption. We are to take this message to all people near and afar! vvs. 17-18
