Sermons on Ephesians

Catching the Wave: The Church

As Christians we are called not to be lone operators but form communities of people, what we now call “church”. Chris concludes our Catching the Wave series by speaking on our contribution to the church and how we can pray for revival in our nation and around the world.

Our Spiritual Warfare

In the final part of the Life in the Spirt series, Andrew Webb looks at Paul’s description of spiritual warfare in Ephesians 6 and explains who this battle is being fought between and what God has given us to defend ourselves against attack.

Be Filled with The Spirit – Part 1

Holiness, love and forgiveness are characteristics of the people the Spirit gathers. These are not arbitary religious practices but reflect the relationship within the Trinity and from God towards each of us. We are called to imitate God in expressing these atributes. In this passage Paul highlights the role of sung worship in helping us to speak the truth to each other and express our love for God. The environment of mutual submission which grows in regularly worshipping together is the next step in building a dwelling place for God.

Unity in the Spirit

In the light of God’s amazing plan to build a dwelling place amongst His people, the Apostle Paul exhorts us to live a life worthy of our calling. Chris unpacks what that looks like in practice. How do we go about using the gifts we have been given by Christ to build a dwelling place for God? How do we avoid grieving the Holy Spirt?
