Ephesians 2:14-22

Just Look What The Lord Has Done!!!!

1.    The quality of the sermons that are preached.    

2.    How friendly the people in the church are to visitors.    

3.    The quality of the programs and classes for children.    

4.    How much you like the pastor.    

5.    The convenience of the times of the weekend services.    

Where Faith and Life Connect!!

"Some churches seem to be sound in doctrine, but they are also sound asleep." 

If we do not have the Spirit's power flowing through us,  we do not have enough to put out hell's fire.

#1. The Church is the Body of Christ. 

The Church is not a

·    committee,    

·    building,    

·    relief organization,    

·    religious supermarket,    

·    crisis center.    

We are the Body of Christ, which is also the Bride of Christ, of which He is the head.

Ephesians 5:1, 2 (NIV) "Be imitators of God, therefore,

Ephesians 4:16 (NIV) "From Him, the whole Body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."

"The church is a workshop and not a dormitory."

#3. The Church is to evangelize the unbelieving world.

After 25, only one in 10,000.

After 45, only one in 200,000.

After 65, only one in 500,000.

Matthew 28:19, 20.

·    Go!    

·    Make disciples.    

·    All nations.    

·    Baptize them.    

·    Teach them to obey the Scripture.    

·    I command you to do it.    

·    I will guide you.    

The Church does not exist for me; I exist for the church.

Galatians 6:10 "As we have therefore opportunity, let

us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the

household of faith."

The ground is level at the foot of the cross.

Your life is now about the person God is making you to be.

You are more than a conqueror, empowered to live a victorious
