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.View Sermon

By the Spirit He dwells in each believer and now through the exercise of the gifts of the Spirit He sets about the work of build a temple of living stones. Will we join the building by eagerly desiring the Spirit’s gifts and using them to build up the body?View Sermon
