During August we’re doing a sermon series on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. Check out the titles:
- August 5: Build one another up in love (Ephesians 4:1-16)
- August 12: Live in love (Ephesians 4:25-5:2)
- August 19: Give thanks in love (Ephesians 5:15-20)
- August 26: Move in love (Ephesians 6:10-20)
You’ll find that the first 3 chapters of Ephesians are pretty much a theological statement, covering what we believe as Christ-followers. Then, in chapter 4, Paul gets down to brass tacks with specific advice and direction. In many Bible translations, the first word of chapter 4 is “Therefore”. Paul is saying, because we believe in Jesus, then we should be responding in this way.
My personal favorite may be coming up on August 26, as we cover Paul’s command to “put on the full armor of God”. And since it’s back-to-school time for our kids, we’ll have a Blessing of the Backpacks that day.
