    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
    —Ephesians 2:19-20 (NIV)
    If only we could agree that Scripture is ‘God’s Word written’, that it is supreme in its authority over all human traditions however venerable, and that it must be allowed to reform and renew the church, we would take an immediate leap forward in ecumenical relationships. Reformation according to the Word of God is indispensable to reunion.
    ... John R. W. Stott (1921-2011), The Contemporary Christian, Inter-Varsity, 1992, p. 182 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 2:19-20; Ps. 118:22; Isa. 28:16; Luke 20:17-18; John 3:34; Acts 4:11-12; Rom. 3:1-2; 1 Pet. 2:6-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, if it be Your will, unite Your people in Your Son.
