sotw: ephesians 2:19-21

Aug 27, 2012

Last night we added something new into our nightly routine…a scripture of the week. We have actually done this in the past, but somehow this habit has been abandoned. I really want it to stick this time and I think if I post about it it will cement it more firmly in my head. So, each week I will share what scripture we are memorizing for the week.

Now therefore, ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.

I have always loved this scripture. As a child I longed to be part of something bigger than myself and this idea of being fellowcitizens with the saints and a member of the household of God buried itself deep in my soul and created in me a great desire to always be a member of His family and to fellowship His other children. I strive to teach my children about their place in God’s family, the greater Christian world generally, and in our church specifically. I love sharing the lives and courage of Christian martyrs throughout the centuries and inculcate in them a desire to serve the Lord with all their hearts just like John Bunyon, William Tyndale, John Lathrop, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
