The second half of Ephesians chapter two begins to teach us what it looks like to be unified as a group of people in Christ.
This week we will begin the second chapter of Ephesians by examining the lowly state of our lives in sin so that we might also see more fully what Jesus has done for us.
After reminding the Ephesian church of their status as God’s chosen and adopted children, he thanks God for them and prays a powerful and loaded prayer for them. We’ll take a look at what this prayer means for all believers in Christ.
The message focus is on what it means to be an authentic Christian community of Christ-like people in our connectedness together and care for one another.
The book of Ephesians begins with praise exploding from the pen of Paul as he writes to the Ephesian church about the work of God. This week we will begin a journey working through the book of Ephesians.
One of the most important themes of the writing of Paul is the importance of unity in the church. This is something that we struggle with in a culture that prides itself on individualism and competition, but this morning we are reflecting on how we are unified as one body in Christ.
As we wrap up the series on Ecclesiastes, we step back to see what Solomon identifies as the big problem in life, and the way that Jesus provides an answer in himself.
This week we examine how the inevitable uncertainties of life are taken care of by the certainty of the Life that is provided in Jesus.
As Solomon sheds light on how inconsistent life often seems to be, we might feel like it is pointless to exercise wisdom at all. But even given the fact that wisdom is not always rewarded in the here and now, Solomon shows us why it is still the best way to live.
One of the most important messages from Ecclesiastes is found in chapter nine. This week we are considering how life is not about what we gain, but it is about recognition of the gifts that we have already received.
