"17And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near."


Ephesians 2:18-22


"18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit."


Your are now a citizen (18-19a)

"18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints ..."

Ephesians 2:11-12


"11Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. "


"but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,"


Philippians 3:20 that says:

"20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,


Your are now God’s household (19b-21)

members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.


1 Peter 2:4-6

"4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6For it stands in Scripture:

“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone,

a cornerstone chosen and precious,

and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”


Your are now The dwelling place of God (22)


"22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit."


SO WHAT?

"19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,"

"21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord."
