Doodle 101 / The Church
“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” -Ephesians 2:19-22
…But, there is so much being torn down…division among Nations, Cities, Neighbor’s, Churches, & Families.
TOGETHER, we are meant to be a dwelling place for our God…a structure that is constructed by the Master Builder.
& Christ is our Cornerstone.
(The cornerstone (or foundation stone) is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.)
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.
I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line;
This sinner is grateful that our loving God does not THROW the first stone…
Instead, He uses it for building!
He reaches out to touch the leper…loving those the world has cast aside.
Father God, fill us with love, wisdom, and a supernatural perspective so that we can put down our rocks.
Open the doors of our churches and our hearts to love all people… Every life is worth saving.
I was so lost…but the good Shepherd called me back to His fold.
I am Grateful.
