A Temple Without Walls | Joe Paschal
In the second chapter of his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul says that believers in Jesus are being built together into a holy temple in which God’s Spirit dwells. It’s a beautiful picture of unity and of believers bound together in peace. However, that unity is often marred by the walls of division we build between us. These walls are created for many reasons: family feuds, politics, race and more. Fortunately, Paul also illustrates the “tools” that can tear the walls down: humility, gentleness, love, and peace.
