Further up and Further In: 1 Peter 1, 2 Peter 1:16-21, 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Ephesians 2:19-22; Matthew 7:24-29
Verse: Ephesians 2:19-20 – So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. CSB
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you have given me such a foundation on which to build my faith and to lead my life. You have inspired them to write your Words for me and for my salvation. They aren’t making stuff up out from their own imaginations. It’s not coming for a smoke-filled room. Their words are your words, and they are perfect, good in every way. Every word of the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit. Help me to open my ears and my hearts to listen carefully to every Word that you have given. Teach me to lead my life and build my faith on the sure and certain foundation of your Word. Amen.
