He also came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household. You have been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the Cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you too are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:17-22 EHV)
Hymn ELH 484:1-2 Christ Alone is Our Salvation
Christ alone is our salvation,
Christ the rock on which we stand;
Other than this sure foundation
Will be found but sinking sand.
Christ, His cross and resurrection,
Is alone the sinner’s plea;
At the throne of God’s perfection
Nothing else can set him free.
We have all things, Christ possessing:
Life eternal, second birth,
Present pardon, peace, and blessing
While we tarry here on earth;
And by faith’s anticipation,
Foretaste of the joy above
Freely given us with salvation
By the Father in His love.
Lord Jesus, You alone are my salvation. Help me to continue building my faith based on the foundation of the apostles and prophets- Your Holy Word. Amen.
