Series: Ephesians - One Big Happy Family

Title: House Rules - Part 1

Scripture: Ephesians 4:17-32

Big Idea: Growing up, we all had rules. You probably had a set of "house rules" that were different from the rules your friends had to follow. Maybe their rules were more strict, or maybe they were more lenient, but we all knew that their were consequences for not following the rules. The rules of religion are similar, outside of Christianity, because they are all designed to make us into someone good. Thanks to the grace of God offered through Jesus, we know that the "house rules" we follow as Christians don’t make us good–only God is good, and only through him can we do any good at all. What we accomplish by following God’s rules as a response to his grace is that we bring the goodness of God’s grace into view for others as we serve, and he provides for us as well as we follow him and his house rules.

Title: United We Stand

Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-16, Galatians 5:22-24

Big Idea: God calls us all to unity… but in what ways? In our deeply polarized world, it seems like every call for unity is an affront to something else. When we practice unity in the Spirit we are unified toward the only valuable, eternal thing–a chance to enter into a relationship with God, and to experience the joy of serving our maker. And that kind of unity doesn’t push people away… it draws them in.

Title: Strength In numbers

Scripture: Ephesians 3:14-21, John 14:12-14

Big Idea: The power of God is cemented in his grace, and God’s expectation is that–through the knowledge of that power–we’d join together to teach and encourage and inspire one another, and to bring the knowledge of the grace of God to others as we follow God together, as one body of believers. There is great power in the gathered assembly of the family of God.

Title: You're Adopted 

Scripture: Ephesians 1:1-14

Big Idea:  Even though it's hard sometimes to believe that we are worth the love of God, there's no amount of wrong we can do to outpace his righteousness.  So we believe, and we embrace our relationship with God as His beloved children.
