Notes Outline


  • Brought In (Ephesians 2:19)
  • Blended Together (Ephesians 2:19)
  • Built Up (Ephesians 2:20-21)
  • Bound for Home (Ephesians 2:22)


  1. (Ephesians 2:19) Paul says that in Christ we have become “citizens” of God’s kingdom. What does that mean? How does being a citizen in God’s Kingdom change the way you live daily? In what ways do you regularly fall short in living like a citizen?
  2. (Ephesians 2:19) Paul says that in Christ we have become part of God’s “family.” What does Paul mean when he says this? How is being a family member different than being a citizen? Is it harder for you to be a citizen or a family member?
  3. (Ephesians 2:20) Paul switches his use of examples in verse 20 from something organic in nature (citizens & family) to something in-organic in nature (rocks & building). Why do you think he is doing this? What is he trying to communicate?
  4. (Ephesians 2:21) Paul ends this passage with a final point that we are being formed into a “dwelling place for God.” What do you think he means by saying this? Community (with God and others) is a consistent theme throughout Scripture. How has sin crushed and destroyed community in your life? How has Jesus recreated or healed that community? What does it look like for you to live in community with God and others this week?
