The Christian’s Partnership

“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19).

Prior to salvation, we are called “aliens . . . and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). “But now . . .” (Ephesians 2:13) we are part of the “new man” (Ephesians 2:15) and the grand partnership that has been made possible between Jew and Gentile, Old and New Covenant saints, and the operative impact and purpose of the “household of God” (Ephesians 2:19).

We are “made nigh” and made “one.” The enemy has been “abolished,” with the “middle wall of partition” that was between us broken down (Ephesians 2:13–15), making us “one body,” with common “access by one Spirit unto the Father” (Ephesians 2:16–18).

Therefore, we are “fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God . . . built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets;” “fitly framed,” growing unto a “holy temple . . . for an habitation of God through the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:19–22), now displayed in a fellowship of past and present, bond and free, male and female—all new “partakers of His promise in Christ by the gospel” (Ephesians 3:1–6; Galatians 3:22–29).

And God has “created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Ephesians 3:10,11).

God has designed His salvation for us in such a way that we cannot fail to achieve His plans for us! We should humbly thank Him for what He has accomplished in us through Christ Jesus. HMM III
