    Ephesians 2:1-10 overflows in celebration of God's grace and kindness! The apostle affirms that all who trust in Christ are part of God's new creation. What God has done for Christ, God has done for his people! The future is shaped by the wonderful hope of the gospel.
  7. Ephesians 2: 11-22
    16 Jul 17
  8. Meeting: Springwood AM
    Speaker: John McClean
    The great ethnic, cultural and religious divide between Jews and Gentiles has been overcome in Christ, so Gentiles are now included in God’s people and share in his promises and purposes. As part of God’s people, we have to take the Old Testament as Christian scripture. God is now building all his people into a temple where he dwells, so we are a worshipping people

    Speaker: Kirk Patston
    In Ephesians 4:17–32, Paul digs into the profound way God wants to remake us: we're created to be like him. When the generous fullness and unifying love of God takes hold of us it will change everything about the way we speak, work and live.
  15. Ephesians 5: 1-20
    13 Aug 17
  16. Meeting: Springwood AM
    Speaker: Luke Pereira
    Ephesians 5:1-20 explores what it means for the church to imitate God in the midst of a culture where many lesser gods beckon to us. Paul reminds the church of their identity as dearly beloved children of God. His words are ones of encouragement to live together as children of light, exposing hollow ways of living and redeeming the time.

    In the ancient world, the good news of Christ changed everything - including relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, slaves and masters. Ephesians 5:21-6:9 is a revolutionary portion of Scripture.
