What is God doing in your city? He is saving people… but not just individuals to live out their individual lives. He is building something. He is building a temple to be inhabited by the Holy Spirit. You are a part of that. I am a part of that. God is looking to build a temple. How do you fit into that… into what he is doing?
Ephesians 2:14-22 NIV - For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He 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. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Out of commitment to God, you commit to people. Out of this, he calls you to a task together. Don't get this backwards!
The enemy targets your commitment by oppressing:
