Our Winter Sermon Series is “Made For More!” Paul, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, reminds the people of the Ephesus community to unite under the sovereignty of Jesus Christ! Christ has reconciled the whole of creation to himself and to God. Paul is writing from prison to the church in Ephesus that they have a responsibility because humanity was Made For More in this world. God has invited humanity to participate in this transforming act of salvation through Jesus Christ.
People of all nations are united to Christ and to one another in the church, through the working of the Trinity. Paul uses several word pictures to describe the church: body, temple, mystery, new creature, bride, and soldier.
Christians should lead holy lives that give honor to God. Paul issues specific guidelines for right living because humanity was Made For More!
