REWIND (EPHESIANS 5 & 6)- KINGDOM HOME

In the world of Ancient Greece, Aristotle believed that the household was a microcosm of the empire at large. From this point of reference Paul writes to the Ephesians in a most scandalous way. He poses that if the kingdom of God invades a household, it can have a large exponential difference through genealogy and by working its way out to the community. In Ephesians 5 and 5 we see how this is played out.

CREATURES OF HABIT (1 TIMOTHY 4:6-11) - AN INTRODUCTION

We're creatures of habit, and habits are powerful.  Daily decisions create habits that determine the substance of our days and either drag us down or help us become the person God created us to be.  With all the voices vying for our attention, how do we practice Life in Christ day after day?  How do we grow up in our faith?   In 1 Timothy we learn the value of spiritual disciplines. 

*ASSEMBLY REQUIRED (1 CORINTHIANS 12:12-27) - MORE THAN YOURSELF

The Church is not a place to go but it is a people, a family, with whom we belong. It’s not a place where you just show up but a people with which you live together in harmony of purpose. In 1 Corinthians 12, we learn we will not be, experience, or express the full wisdom, beauty, and power of God unless we embrace that He has Sovereignly guided our steps and our lives, to one another.
