Pastor Eric brings the Word to us on this Thanksgiving weekend. Ephesians is so rich with truth, and this week's sermon delivers more of it--a prayer for spiritual strength.
After a year like this, it only seems fitting to pause, reflect, and worship God for the things He has done. And He has done great things!
...Well, if you are a Christ-follower, then yes! There are directives in Ephesians for us, and it is very challenging to consider!
There are three illustrations given in this section of Ephesians, for ways we need to be living in this world. Pastor Scott shares these with us-- we have some privileges and responsibilities related to each one.
It's easy to fall into an "Us vs Them" mentality about everything in life. We are rivalry minded. Pastor Scott challenged us with where rivalries come from, and how we can work at reconciling them in our minds, through the Scripture.
Pastor Eric dives into Ephesians two - challenging us about how the gospel takes us from death to life! Isn't that backwards? Listen, and see!
It is easy to get swept up in the culture's definitions of what is important. Let the Word be our guide for life, and let our identity be found in God our Savior!
What's a Christian to do? Every issue seems to be a political one these days. How does a person keep peace when their identifying party says to fight? Pastor Scott helped us see things differently this week!
We need to recognize the resources that we have in Christ--take stock of what we have at our fingertips, if we just avail ourselves to them!
As Christians, we often focus too much on what we want, and not enough on what we have. We have so many spiritual blessings - this message highlights a few of them.
