Romans 8:1 Deliverance from Bondage 8 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

What the church is as God sees it

The church is not doors and steeples— its God and His people!Built on love and sacrifice.Built on truth-teachings of apostles and prophets.Built as a house for all… all are invited. Built as a house for God- This is how God has chosen to live among people. Ephesians 5:29-30 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body.

Getting Along…Too

A new generation will ignore these principles to their peril. “Fail” Starting Points: 1.“If only he would change!” 2.“If only she would treat me better.” 3.“He ought to do…!” “Success starts here…” 1.Choose one thing you can do to make things better. 2.Expect the best. Ephesians 4:22-24 22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old [a]self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new [b]self,…

Words to Live By Part 5 – Be Equipped

Ephesians 4:11-13 11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the [a]saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the [b]knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature [c]which belongs to the fullness of Christ.

Christ Gives Us Hope

We were without hope prior to the cross. Christ gives us hope to those who seek Him. Without Jesus there is no hope in Christ. Christ gives us hope. No one comes to God, except through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Ephesians 2: 2-13 Made Alive in Christ 2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the…

How Privileged We Are To Serve.

To serve God, to serve his church, being able to serve in any capacity.When it comes to christianity we are not called to be spectators. Ephesians 2:10 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
