‘Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants, and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now SHARE CITIZENSHIP WITH THE SAINTS (God’s own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s [own] household. You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone. IN HIM THE WHOLE STRUCTURE IS JOINED (BOUND, WELDED) TOGETHER HARMONIOUSLY, AND IT CONTINUES TO RISE (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. IN HIM [AND IN FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER] YOU YOURSELVES ALSO ARE BEING BUILT UP [INTO THIS STRUCTURE] WITH THE REST, TO FORM A FIXED ABODE (DWELLING PLACE) OF GOD IN (BY, THROUGH) THE SPIRIT.’ (Eph 2:19-22)
‘Show respect for all men [treat them honorably]. Love the brotherhood (the Christian fraternity of which Christ is the Head). Reverence God. Honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:17 AMP … I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another’ (John 13:34)
Christ is ONE, so are we, as THE BODY OF CHRIST! Whatever affects one affects all.
