We are the people who live in Yahweh’s household. We eat at His table. We are welcome at His meetings and gatherings.
I write these things to you, hoping to come to you soon. But if I should be delayed, I have written so that you will know how people ought to act in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. And most certainly, the mystery of godliness is great:
He was manifested in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit,
seen by angels,
preached among the Gentiles,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.
(1 Timothy 3:14-16 Holman Christian Standard Bible® ©)
We are the foundation of truth. Yet, we are so undiscerning of truth that we cannot tell who is lying as we read the news. We cannot tell who is in error as we read books by popular writers who lead the Church.
As we continue to build each other up in love, each part doing our part, we will mature to the point of standing beside our Lord and Husband in a unified manifestation of faith and truth (Ephesians 4). We will stand for nothing but the Truth, and the Way, and the Life.
The path to that place of being a foundation may be painful and costly. Brace up!
