Grace is for Everybody

"The Complexities of Applying Grace to Everyday Life"

EPHESIANS 5:1-6:9

Scripture is as much a revelation of God for our lives as it is a multi-form mirror to the larger human experience, and so it is our discipline to use difficult texts to open important conversations that help us develop a more holistic and life giving relationship to our holy texts while we also wrestle with the complexities of applying grace to everyday life. Even more, today’s text affords us the opportunity to learn how to read holy Scripture and discern the difference between timeless wisdom and time bound convention.

"Grace Changes Us"

EPHESIANS 4

This is the beauty of grace...grace that changes us- that opens us to love, to the world, to each other. It is grace that changes how we live, how we love, and how we are together. It is grace that invites us to be grown and calls us forth for love and the mystery and promise of Christ is this- you are, we are beloved members of one family of a God who loves and heals, and holds and restores us all.

WORSHIP GUIDE

Here in this new community of people who used to be divided...that’s where God shows up. That’s where the mystery and the power of the gospel of grace is found. That this human community, yes even our human community, is where God shows up—in the midst of our diverse differences.

"Grace as Gift"

EPHESIANS 2

2-Grace Is For Everybody.png
…just as our teaching series on Galatians spent six weeks on “freedom in Christ” as if we were turning a precious gem to get different viewing angles, so will the series on Ephesus be like taking different viewing angles on the gem of grace. Today’s angle invites us to view grace as gift and a way of live that our creator infused into the human experience and confirmed in Christ.
