New Sermon Series:
|Sermon Series : Growing Up Into Christ
In Ephesians 4:15, which says, “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ…”, Paul helps us see that God’s plan for our life is to become more Christ-like in every way.
In this gem of a chapter, Ephesians 4, Paul urges us to ‘walk in a manner worthy’ of the calling Jesus has given us. He reminds us that we have been given gifts for the express purpose to do the work of ministry for which we have been called. He admonishes us to not be ‘childish’ in regard to spiritual things but to be mature and growing up, so we are more like Jesus. And he helps us see that a healthy Body of Christ is robust in agape love!
So, the challenge is to begin walking out this manner of life…the ‘Jesus Life’…with all humility, gentleness, and patience…all the while bearing up one another in agape love! Let’s do this, brothers and sisters of Morton United Methodist Church!
We will begin this journey in August. Please be reading Ephesians 4:1-16 and ask Jesus to help you become more mature in Him!
