Text: Ephesians 6:10-13 Until Jesus comes again, Christians and the church will be at war. But, instead of fighting against an enemy with guns, bombs, IEDs, or other weapons, we are fighting an unseen but powerful spiritual enemy led by Satan and his army of fallen angels. In Ephesians 6:10-13, the Apostle Paul introduces us to the nature of our struggles and how to win in spiritual warfare.
Text: Matthew 28:1-7 Some people will never be persuaded that Jesus Christ is both fully man and fully God who can provide forgiveness of sins and give new life to the sinner unless they see convincing proof that that is possible. What kind of convincing proof is needed? Easter teaches us that when it comes to proof, the empty tomb of Jesus is enough. Read all about it in Matthew 28:1-7.
Text: Ephesians 6:5-9 Because of God’s Word and God’s help, Christians should stand out as the very best bosses, employees or students. They have good reason to offer service with a smile. In Eph. 6:5-9 we move from the fireplace at home to the workplace or classroom where you work or study and discover what makes followers of Christ different.
Text: Ephesians 6:1-4 In Ephesians 6:1-4, the Apostle Paul outlines what it takes to build a godly home where parents and children follow Jesus. The text reveals that there are four essential characteristics of a Christ-centered home that are building blocks.
Text: Selected Passages There is an elephant in the room. That saying expresses what is happening in our church right now. But the Scriptures help us to talk about our elephant(s) and see them through God’s eyes. Let’s see how this works in 3 different but true stories in the Bible.
Text: Ephesians 5:21-33 The true measure of church and home can be seen best behind closed doors. We see this in the letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus and to us. Open the door of church and home in Ephesians 5:21-33 and you will see God’s design that we are to follow and glorify God.
Text: Ephesians 5:15-21
Text: Ephesians 5:7-14 In the Bible, light is a symbol of God and the life he gives. Darkness is a symbol of sin and death. We all have daily choices to make between light and darkness and the message from God in his Holy Word is choose light. We see that in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in Chapter 5: 7-14. What will you choose?
Text: Ephesians 5:1-6 You’ve heard of air pollution; how about water pollution? But have you ever heard about spiritual pollution? Study Eph. 5:1-6 and you will find help to live a life of purity in a world filled with spiritual pollution.
Text: Col. 3:15-17 What’s it like to live in community? And, why should we? The Christian life is designed by God to be lived out in community with others who know and love Jesus as they follow him as his disciples. This community life can be seen in the words of the Apostle Paul found in Colossians 3:15-17.
