Easter 4 – Ephesians 2:19-22
We Belong to Jesus
1. As Citizens, Saints, and Family
2. As Living Stones on the foundation
3. As a holy temple
Sermon Summary: People want to ‘belong’ by nature, and that can be a powerful motivator for joining a church. Jesus offers us the fullest sense of belonging because He not only accepts us by faith, but He has bought us (redeemed) by His blood. We are no longer our own, Jesus claims us as His own. We belong to Him. The Holy Spirit captures this wonderful truth through the beautiful imagery of God’s Church as a holy temple built on the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ.
