2 Samuel 7:1-14a; Ephesians 2:11-22

We often resist the message of the Bible because it's about things that are ultimately important and that seem, at first blush, so counter-intuitive. Today's First Testament reading along with the Epistle talks about "temples made of people," "new human beings" and a "fresh start for all of us." What possibly might they mean? The Good News is that we don't have to understand it all to get it! All we have to do is start practicing in God's new household, the temple Christ is building and things start to make sense!
