Ephesians-Built Up in Love
Once we know what our calling is, how do we go about it?
 
Because we have all been crafted uniquely, we fit into different roles to do God's work. When we see all these roles in action together, the body of Christ can effectively equip the church. It is with imbalance, outside of God's unity, that we find chaos.
 
We were made to build each other up in love!

    Ephesians-Commonly Unique
    Do you feel like you just blend in with the crowd?
     
    God has created all of us to be unique as individuals! He has a specific role that nobody else can do in the way that He wants you to. Yet within this uniqueness, we share a common calling: to glorify God and make disciples.
     
    Paul knew his calling--do you?

    Ephesians-Tear Down Walls
    Are there any barriers between you and another?
     
    We like to build up our walls of defense, but Jesus came to tear them down! He came, as human, to remove prejudices, sin, pride, hostility...anything that separates us from people and God. He wants everyone to have access to His family!
     
    He has made a way; let us walk through into His dwelling place.

    Ephesians-Dead, but Alive!
    We've all heard it before: "Christians are so judgmental."
     
    Why is this so common? Sometimes, it's almost like we forget who we used to be ourselves. The reality is that Christians need God just as much as non-believers.
     
    With great rejoicing, let us remember that we were dead, but Christ made us alive!

    Ephesians-Those Who Intercede
    When we pray for others, are we doing it with the right mindset?
     
    Too often, we just pray for God to remove a problem...but if we start with the right motivation, our prayers are aligned with the heart of God. Understanding the promises and power of God then causes us to wait with hopeful expectancy that He will do His good will!
     
    We are called into a powerful role as intercessors for those around us!

    Ephesians-Those Who Remember
    Humanity has an amazing capacity to forget.
     
    We forget our wallet, our keys, or whether or not we left the stove on. Sometimes, we are glad to finally blot an event out of our memory...but what about the good things we are supposed to remember?
     
    This week, let us together remember the works of our Father!

    He Knows Our Pain
    Do you feel disconnected from God, like He doesn't understand your current situation?
     
    At Easter, we are reminded once again that Jesus is fully acquainted with our sorrows. He not only took on a human body, but a full human life. He went through all that entails and, as He died, He took all of our sins upon Himself.
     
    May we never forget what He has done for us!

    A Life of Invitation
    Easter Sunday is a special opportunity to invite people to church, as more people are willing to come either then or on Christmas Eve.
     
    Yet, isn't it awkward to invite your neighbor whom you've barely talked to in the last 2 years you've lived next door? Are we really coming off as genuine when we only reach out to them in an attempt to "reel them in"?
     
    Instead of just inviting them to church once or twice a year, we should be inviting people into our daily lives to see who Jesus is.
