“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but your are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household” (Ephesians 2:19).
To be a member of the household of God is a unique and distinctive citizenship; characterized by gathering with a community not of strangers and aliens, but brothers and sisters of the faith. While many think of faith only in terms of what it offers in the hereafter, there are an exponentially greater number of scriptures emphasizing faith being lived in the context of community here and now. The individualistic, churchless, lone ranger spirituality of today has no precedence in biblical literature. From Acts to Revelation, the Spirit of the resurrected Christ labors to form his people into a community. Let us work with Him to see it done.
