In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord].
In Christ we are a part of a growing holy temple in the Lord. We are to be dedicated, and consecrated (set apart) unto God. We are in the world but no longer of the world, we are the light that now shines in the darkness. Every born again believer should be living a life dedicated to the Lord. You don’t become born again to remain the same as you were before. Receiving Christ means you also receive a new life and therefore a new lifestyle. But for that to happen we must renew our mind’s to God’s Word so we can come to know the new you. We must also make God’s priorities our priorities, choose His will over our own will, and line our life up with the Word of God. To live a changed life, one separated and dedicated unto the Lord, you have to change how you see and how you live your life. You will be glad you did.
