As members of the Church, Scripture tells us that we are; “no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;” Eph 2:19-20
When we were once alienated in sin from God, we are now part of God’s family and as such we are all brothers and sisters in Christ. We belong to God and He is our heavenly Father. In addition, we are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets or that could be interpreted as the foundation of the Old and New Testaments.
We have the Word of God as our sure foundation and so the call is to continue to build our spiritual house higher upon that foundation. Strengthen your faith with prayer, fasting, Bible reading and service in the House of God. Be faithful in your witness and giving to the cause of Christ. Walk in righteousness and study God’s truth to bring liberty and peace in your heart. Since our foundation is secure, let us aim to grow higher for heaven is the limit.
