Meditation Ephesians 2:19

15/12/2015 20:49


Scripture.  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.  Ephesians 2:19  KJV

The apostle Paul is writing to the believers at Ephesus. He encourages them to walk worthy of their calling as
we must also.

Paul describes our state before we come to Christ as that of foreigners and strangers in this world.  There are many other descriptions of our fallen state but these speak to me.

Many of us feel like foreigners and strangers in our own family!  We are familiar with what it feels like to be estranged.

But, here the Holy Spirit through Paul is telling us some Good News. When we give our lives over to Jesus and our heart and mind is changed, we are no more foreigners to Him.

Jesus the Son of God accepts us as kin.  When He does this, the Father accepts us as "fellow citizens of the household of God".

Suggested reading today would be for the Book of Ephesians in the New Testament.  These are your rights, and obligations to walk worthy in God's Kingdom while here on earth. 

I hope the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened.


Lord, thank You that you have devised a Way for us to know You.  Help me to read and mediate on Your Word today. Amen.
