For this sketch “The Way of God Church” I pulled from Ephesians 2:19-22. It does not refer to any specific Church. It points out that a truly Christian Church is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone.”
These three verses are packed with several truths. They show how we Jesus followers are “no longer strangers and aliens but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”
It also shows the connection between the New and Old Testaments in the statement that our faith is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets.”
Plus, it illustrates the essential role of “Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.” Christ is the firm anchor for our faith from its beginning and into eternity!
One of the ways I (Stephen) study the Holy Bible is through simple drawings I make as I read or as the Holy Spirit brings images to my mind. For all my drawings I use my English Standard Version (ESV) Bible. It does not have commentary with it as many study Bible do, but, it does have 10,000 cross references. I like to use it as scripture defining scripture. I show my references in the drawing, look them up and see if in your spirit they are related to my drawing.
