"We belong!" That's what the apostle Paul is telling us. We're not outsiders or second-class citizens or "Johnny come lately" children of God. Because of grace, we belong! We are part of God's house! The foundation of that house is made up of the apostles and prophets. The cornerstone of that house is Jesus himself. Incredibly, we are also a part of this holy house of God. We belong!
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
— Ephesians 2:19-20
Dear Lord thank you for bringing me into your people by grace through faith in Jesus. Thank you for making me an important part of your house. Forgive me for the times that I have doubted my importance to You and awaken in me the fact that I belong to you, to your people, and to your house. In Jesus' name. Amen.
