You are built together (Eph. 2:22)

“In Christ,

You also

Are being built together

Into a dwelling place

For God

In the Spirit.”

ἐν ᾧ καὶ ὑμεῖς συνοικοδομεῖσθε εἰς κατοικητήριον τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν Πνεύματι.

Paul said, “In Christ (ἐν ᾧ), you also are being built together (καὶ ὑμεῖς συνοικοδομεῖσθε) into a dwelling place (εἰς κατοικητήριον) for God (τοῦ Θεοῦ) in the Holy Spirit (ἐν Πνεύματι).”  Only this Ephesian letter used this unique word συνοικοδομεῖσθε, that means to build together.  Paul explained that we have to build together with Christ this new dwelling place for God the Father in the Holy Spirit.  The new every expanding, non-static spiritual Church of Christ must continue to grow.  We have a part in the building of this new temple to God so that God, the Father, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit may dwell in us and in our new ever expanding spiritual temple.  Are you developing God’s church?
