This coming weekend I’m beginning a series entitled ‘What is the Church?’ from Ephesians. We’re specifically looking for how Ephesians defines the church. January 2&3 we’ll look at Ephesians chapter 1 trying to answer that question. So, my challenge for each of you is that you read Ephesians 1 before we get there and see what the Bible tells us about the definition of the church.
I have become increasingly uncomfortable with the way most Christians define the church, and how easy it is to walk away from it because we don’t understand what the church of Jesus Christ really is. The understanding we’ll receive in this series will reopen our eyes to a new and powerful reality.
So, read chapter 1 prior to this weekend and come expecting to grow in your faith.
