BUILT TOGETHER IN CHRIST Ephesians 2:17-22 Print this Bible Study
** In our study together last week, we saw a five fold description of the nations (which of course includes us). Do you recall how we were described prior to our salvation?
** Having been "Brought Near in Christ" by our gracious and loving God, we now enjoy peace with our fellow Christian and peace with the God we serve. Were you aware this past week of the closeness you have with others in the body of Christ, which He accomplished through the shedding of His blood?
** What is the significance of the body of Christ? For what purpose did
He create His church?
