Message Notes

Sharing The Kingdom: Known - Week 4

  • Sharing the Kingdom

Scripture Reference: Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV)

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

Scripture Reference: Ephesians 2:20-22(The Message)

He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.

  • In Christ, you are fully known and fully immersed into the family of God.
  • Fellow Citizens

Scripture Reference: Matthew 22:2 (NIV)

“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son”

  • Don't give up.

Scripture Reference: Galatians 6:9-10 (NIV)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

  • Be in a right relationship with God.
  • Be a part of a fellowship of believers.
  • Be intentional about inviting others to the king's table.
