The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord,” Ephesians 2:20b-21 NASB
In Christ every believer is being fitted together in His church. Having been saved by His grace through faith in His atoning sacrifice, every believer is to be growing in his lifestyle, becoming a part of the holy temple of God. God is molding and making the believer to be holy, to live righteously as a child of God. God is shaping and cutting the facets of each believer and placing them into the building, His holy temple, which is being set apart to worship, honor, and glorify the Lord.
Lord Jesus, mold me and shape me into a holy and sanctified part of Your church. Use my life, being fitted together with other believers, to bring You glory and praise.
