  • As we continued in Ephesians 5 last Sunday, we saw that God can use the light of your life to not only expose the works of darkness, but also transform darkness to light. What if the way you lived in purity and holiness could transform the lives of the people around you?
     


  • Last Sunday we continued in the theme of holiness, as Jesus doesn't just make us a little bit more moral and compliant, but he transforms our motivations and actions completely. When it comes to following Jesus, there is no middle ground. Either we commit fully to the life of Jesus, or we wallow in apathy and complacency.


  • Last Sunday’s scripture is pretty significant and challenging for us as a contrast community.  And if we are to be fully alive in Christ, we must understand the nature of our sexuality.


  • On Easter Sunday, we looked at a reminder from Ephesian 2:5, that God has made us alive in Christ and what that means for life after the resurrection.


  • Paul continues his emphatic message to the church in Ephesus, not to guilt and shame, but instead to remind the believers of their true identity as Christians. Repentance is coming in to reality and rejecting falsehood; believing our identity is truly and only in Christ.

     

    Let go of the "try harder" mentality - that isn't what Christ taught us. Instead may we turn and believe God in our minds and hearts that we are exactly who He says we are. Until we do that, we're in danger of living in denial of our new and true identity.
