Text of the Lection:

Ephesians

2:18 因为我们两下藉着他被一个圣灵所感,得以进到父面前。
For through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father.

2:19 这样,你们不再作外人和客旅,是与圣徒同国,是 神家里的人了。
So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God,

2:20 并且被建造在使徒和先知的根基上,有基督耶稣自己为房角石,
built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone.

2:21 各(或作“全”)房靠他联络得合式,渐渐成为主的圣殿。
In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;

2:22 你们也靠他同被建造,成为 神藉着圣灵居住的所在。
in whom you also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.

1 Timothy

3:15 倘若我耽延日久,你也可以知道在 神的家中当怎样行,这家就是永生 神的教会,真理的柱石和根基。
If I am delayed, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth.
