You Are Built Together
7th DECEMBER 2022
For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 3:14 AMPC
Before God created the heavens and the earth, He had a plan. He had you and me in mind with the making of every single creation. The world’s population recently hit 8 billion, but the angelic population has never increased. Yet, there is and will never be a lack of angels to minister to our needs. God knew that a third of the angelic population would rebel, but he made enough to be able to cater for the 8 billion plus people living today and those to come. God has hindsight, insight, and foresight to make His plans fail-proof.
God’s plans are so great and eternal that it goes beyond what we see currently. Paul noted that the greatness of the plan required that we be built together in Christ. This means that we are to be moulded and meshed into one big, beautiful structure. The smallest unit of that structure is supposed to be the family.
A building block is made up of various components including cement, water, and sand. Each one is important to the formation of the block, but the materials cannot make a building on their own. In the same way, we are components of our families, and we must come together to make a building block. It is only when each block is strong that they can come together to form a strong building, not forgetting that we already have a solid foundation, who is Christ.
Like Paul, may we also see the greatness of God’s plan by which we are built together in our biological and spiritual families.
Heavenly Father, please help us to see Your great plan and align our hearts to it. Build us together in love, oneness and, strength. Make our family flourish as You have purposed it, and may never forget to offer our worship and praise to You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
