3 Parts of building the “church”

“IN You” - ABILITY
“WITH You” - AVAILABILITY
“BEYOND You” - SUSTAINABILITY
It starts “IN YOU” (Ability) but needs to move to “WITH YOU” (Availability)

Too much emphasis on “IN YOU” turns into “ABOUT YOU”

The more introspective we become the more ineffective we can become

With - Webster - Indicates a participant in an action, transaction, or arrangement
Fellow citizens - sumpolites - Members of the same socio-political unit group; “crew”

Members of the household - oikeios - One who belongs to a household or family

Jesus Christ Himself - the chief cornerstone - The stone set in the foundations at the corner to bind all together and to give the walls their line
1st "TOGETHER" - FITTED TOGETHER

Fitted together - sunarmologeo - To join together in a coherent and compatible manner

Fitted - Webster - Uniquely shaped for a precise fit; custom
Building with Brick vs. Stone

Bricks are all the same shape and size - not unique

A stone’s shape and size is unique so its place in the wall is unique
Grows - auxo - to increase in the extent of or in the instances of an activity or state

Ex: A wall “grows” as more stones find their place and get attached to it.
2nd "TOGETHER" - BUILT TOGETHER

Built together - sunoikodomeo - To undergo construction along with another; build into a unified whole

Dwelling place - katoiketerion - Habitation, lives more than temporarily
Knit together - sumbibazo - To bring together into a unit or a combined whole; drive or force together

By - through or because of

Joint - haphe - Connective tissue; that which binds or joins together; ligament

Supplies - epichoregia - To furnish, provide or contribute

Share - heis - One; the smallest whole number, used to refer to a single person or thing.
Part of our life fulfillment comes from what we SUPPLY not by what we RECEIVE
APPLICATION:

Where have you made your life too much about you? How can you change that with God?

You are not a generic brick but a unique stone that has a place where you “FIT”!

Are you BUILDING your section with others? Is there a gap you are supposed to work on?

Are you supplying your share to KNIT others together?

If everyone served and gave like you, what would the church be able to do? More or less?

Are you a part of the CREW or are you a part of the CROWD?
