En vallfartssång av Salomo. Om inte HERREN bygger huset är arbetarnas möda förgäves. Om inte HERREN bevarar staden vakar väktaren förgäves.

Från www.lifemessenger.org :


"… like Christ, his body now becomes the dwelling of God:

In whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. Ephesians 2:21–22 ESV

The organic joining of the head and the body, of Christ and the believer, is integral to God finding a place in which to dwell. The outshining of God’s glory is manifest from the head, through the body.

Consequently, corporate life will only flow from inner life. This is why any attempt to build church life without the Spirit is doomed to failure. And by this, I mean failure in God’s eyes. Many build churches, which by man’s estimation are successful, but in heaven’s eyes have failed. What Christ obtained as the forerunner of the new order, as the firstborn from the dead, and as head of the body is only ours through vital union with him.
