Bible Passage: Ephesians 2:19-22

Part 6 of A New Community: The Church Living Out God’s Gospel – In a world of division, the gospel creates a new community–a community in Christ, whose atoning death and glorious resurrection brings us into a new relationship with God and each other. Our passage this morning gives us three images of that new community that point us to three aspects of our life together.

I. We are now Fellow Citizens in God’s Kingdom.

Together we come under God’s rule and protection.

II. We are now Brothers and Sisters in God’s Family.

Together we experience God’s loving care.

III. We are now Stones joined together in God’s Temple.

Together we bear witness to God’s presence in the world.

How do we as Cornerstone Church
experience and live out the community
that the gospel creates?
