Ephesians 2:20, 21 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
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.
Every temple and every building has to have a solid foundation. And to have a solid foundation you must have a cornerstone without defect and true. The apostles and prophets are the foundation we base our beliefs and are doctrines , and the Lord Jesus Christ is the corner stone that makes sure the foundation is square. All our Faith or hope and our eternal security is supported by the foundation made secure by the cornerstone. Without the cornerstone there can be no sure foundation. Any foundation not build on the cornerstone of Christ is built on sand. The Bible tells us to be Holy as I am Holy, and it seems like an unreasonable request seeing how we still struggle with our flesh. But here we see the solution, we are all being joined together spiritually as the body of Christ grows. And are Holiness comes from the fact we are in Christ, this is our positional standing in the Lord. Yet in our daily walk we must still strive for Holiness and to walk according to the Spirit. “A lesson we can learn from this is that the call for holiness should sound for all corners because Christ is still coming for a church that is without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:25-30). Peter made the call in his lifetime, be holy as the Lord your God is holy (1Peter 1:15-16). We need to be holy in all our conduct. That means we should act without any hint of impurity. Merely saying you are committed to change on the holiness path is not enough, there must be commitment to the tools that will enhance that change, towards turning the thoughts of our hearts constantly to God, towards guard our hearts with all diligence because out of it comes the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23)” We should do what the psalmist did. He said: your words have I put in my heart that I may not sin against you (Psalm 119:11)”. Kayode Crown (www.dailymedit.wordpress.com) This is a spiritual truth you can take to heart. Being in Christ a sovereign Holy God sees us as being Holy. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! (Romans 11:33)
