Lent 2009 (9) – Meeting God

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow-citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to
become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Ephesians 2:19-22

You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through
Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5

We are like stones being built together into a place of worship. We are where God lives, where he can be met and known. As they meet us, engage with us and share with us they should sense: “God is really among you!” (1 Corinthians 14:25).

The church doesn’t just preach good news it is good news. Good news for all who meet us: A living Temple where we meet God.
