The New Creation Temple

We come to the final paragraph in Ephesians 2. Paul has been describing the work of God in building his church. God takes dead sinners and unites them to Christ and one another in him. Paul now describes the result of this work of God as a glorious new creation temple. Here Paul begins to drive home the importance and significance of the visible church. It is not an option for believers. We see four things in this paragraph.

  1. Who we are in Christ (v. 19).
  2. The foundation of the church (v. 20).
  3. How we grow (v. 21).  
  4. The goal of all this (v. 22).
