Sermons on Ephesians
We are in the middle of a series on relationships, and we learning how much the Bible says about how we are to conduct ourselves with people. Our world is filled with conflict, and the Bible calls followers of Jesus to be counter-cultural when it comes to conflict. Imagine what it would be like to have relationships that are characterized by peace. That is God’s desire for those who know Jesus. He wants to show the world the powerful and practical difference that the gospel brings.
What's our idea of unity? Do we think God has saved us as individuals and unity is somethings that is seen only in Heaven? Is it just a personal relationship, and our own personal walk with God? No, Jesus has saved us to one body here on earth. We are in unity here on earth, we belong to His body that we get to experience now. Pastor Tim shows us how glorious it is to live and grow in the body of Christ here and now.
Prayer is the air that Christian soldiers breathe. It is how we soar and how we fight. It is a lifestyle saturated by Spirit-controlled, persevering prayer. As we make the turn into 2009 and launch into prayer week, I want to call you to a renewed commitment to all-encompassing prayer. I want you to use this message and the prayer week events listed in the bulletin as an opportunity to increase the vitality of your prayer life.
Matt Carter spoke on "Mission and the Surge," at the Phoenix Boot Camp in 2010. Here he talks about shifting his concept of the purpose of small groups in his church - moving them from Community Groups to Missional Communities.
Scripture says that every Christian is holy, or a saint. If we were to be honest, most would agree that we usually see ourselves as anything but holy. In actuality, we feel more dirty than holy. More like scums than saints! And yet, we are called holy saints. What does this mean? How can we be holy if we feel so dirty? And if it is true that we are holy, how does this affect the way we think and feel about God and ourselves? And how do we go about living holy lives?
The problem that many of us face is the fact that we are content with things which we should be discontent and we are discontent where we should be content. Spiritually, this misplaced contentment is dangerous. Covetousness destroys our relationships and our own souls in a relentless search for fulfillment in all the wrong things. You will never be satisfied with anything unless God is satisfied with you and you are satisfied in God through Jesus.
