Week 4, Day 3

II. The church has seven major aspects

B. The house (household) of God—Eph. 2:19, 21–22; 1 Tim. 3:15

Ephesians 2:21–22 In whom all the building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 In whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in spirit.

1 Timothy 3:15 But if I delay, I write that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and base of the truth.

1. The church is God’s house, God’s dwelling place.

2. The church is God’s household, God’s family.

C. The kingdom of God—cf. Eph. 2:19; Rom. 14:17

Ephesians 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.


Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.

Later, watch the following short video podcast sometime during the day.
