Stewart weighs in on the House of Prayer

Stewart Black, whom we at Open Door lovingly and admiringly call our official Bible Answer Man, weighs in on the theme of our week of prayer, the house of prayer:

In Ephesians 2:19-22, Paul says, "So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit." If we, as the church of God, are "being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit," then it stands to reason that the things that characterize the place where God dwells should characterize us -- including, among other things, that we should be a house of prayer!
