  1. Community: Recap • As the energy of God. Essential commitments. Scott • Like a Mustard Seed that creates a haven. DM • As a House of prayer. DM • Jesus the true connection point. Steve

  2. Community: as the temple of God • Ps 65: 4 Blessed is the man you chose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with all the good things of your house, of your holy temple.

  3. As we come to Him… • 1 Peter 2:4-7 • As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: • "See, I lay a stone in Zion, • a chosen and precious cornerstone, • and the one who trusts in him • will never be put to shame.”

  4. What Jesus would have seen from the Mount

  5. The Temple during Jesus’ time

  6. A light never extinguished Josephus quotes from a work written by a certain Hecataeus of Abdera, a philosopher who lived in the fourth and third centuries BCE and who wrote a work about the Jews. 

  7. Individual Stones

  8. Stones were cut to reveal the individual stone

  9. Individual stones of varying sizes.

  10. Set without mortar.

  11. The first step was laying the chief cornerstone.

  12. This stone was mammoth

  13. The stability of everything came from the breadth and quality of the foundation stone.

  14. As we come to Him… • 1 Peter 2:4-7 • As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: • "See, I lay a stone in Zion, • a chosen and precious cornerstone, • and the one who trusts in him • will never be put to shame.”

  15. Community wall principles • The main thing: pressing down into Jesus and the reality of his crucifixion. Letting Jesus shine through us. • Everything is held together by the weight of pressing into deep truth AND lives. • “We” stones, not “Me” stones. • Interlocked. • Not about attending; about relationships. If a stone is removed, the foundation will still hold. • Very specific.

  16. An Essential Commitment • To press into a clear support relationship within our fellowship. This should be done out of genuine desire for spiritual maturity, a commitment to personal holiness, a response to God’s grace in another, and the conviction that personal accountability is needed in order to progress and be safeguarded from deception.
