In Step With God - Ephesians 4

People are saved when they trust Jesus Christ as Savior and choose to follow Him. Right then, most Christians realize that they will dwell with Him forever in heaven. But many don’t understand what they can expect for the remainder of their lives on earth.


One benefit that’s available immediately is a growing relationship with the Lord. The Father’s oneness with Jesus (John 10:30) illustrates the intimacy God wants to have with His children. He had this type of closeness in mind at creation—a relationship with man is an avenue for Him to express His love and for us to worship and understand our Maker.


Another advantage is that Christ-followers are promised clear guidance through God’s Holy Spirit. Decision making is a part of everyday life. It is impossible for a mere human to know every variable and nuance before choosing which path to take. But the Lord knows all things—past, present, and future. With godly wisdom available, it’s hard to understand why anyone would prefer to trust his own hunches.


Provision is yet another blessing guaranteed for believers. There will be hard times, but God gives Christians everything necessary for following Him (Philippians 4:19). And His grace will always prove more than sufficient (II Corinthians 12:9). How abundantly God gives to His children! One word of caution, though: these gifts are effective only when believers walk obediently with Him. Sin can stifle them.




Current Sermon Series
      How should today's church conduct itself in order to comply with Christ's mandate? How can your role as a leader or a worker make a difference in your church? As we study various passages from God's Word, we will see the clear direction given by Christ, who nurtures and provides for His body, the church.


Last Week:
      God wants our church to be like the church in Thessalonica, a Saved, Surrendered, and Suffering church. God wants us to be following Him, yielded to Him, understanding that we could be persecuted for His cause.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will continue our look into what God wants our church to be.
