The Bible uses a lot of imagery to explain different concepts. In Ephesians 2:20-21, Paul describes God's people as a building. A building is built on a foundation. The foundation that the church is built on is the teaching of the apostles and prophets. Jesus is the cornerstone, which is the first stone that is laid. The building is made of stones and each stone has an important role to play, otherwise there would be gaps and holes in the wall. The stones are made into one building, not one building for pentecostals and another for baptists. When we are united, we glorify God by becoming a holy temple for the Lord. You are connected to believers around the world from different cultural backgrounds and denominations like stones in a building. You are not alone.
