How do we respond to being wronged? Do we seek retribution, restitution, justice? In this passage of scripture a former slave, Onesimus, while on the run for theft from his master, Philemon, runs into the Apostle Paul and comes to faith in Christ. With this personal letter from Paul, we see the gospel of reconciliation and restoration on display. As much as we have been wronged, we have never been wronged as much as we have wronged Christ.

It's no secret that when a child is born into this world, they do not come with a "How to" manual! The challenges and changes within a child's life can be, at times. overwhelming for Mom's and Dad,'s..parenting is truly not for "wimps." As parents, we must understand that our children belong to the Lord, and we are responsible on how they are raised. By God's grace, through the power of His Spirit, and the guidance of His word, you CAN parent God's way. despite our cultures confusion on these subjects. Children really are a blessing from the Lord!

Today we conclude our two week study on the God-ordained roles in a Christian marriage. As we now look at the role of the husband, we see that he is to love his wife as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her

Over the next two weeks, we are going to be looking at the section of Ephesians that talks about the covenant of marriage. In it we will find God’s order for the Christian home and His divine description of the role of the wife and husband within this sacred union.

Have you ever wondered how you as a Christian fit into the "Church?"The Bible describes us as a body which has many members but one body.The many members aren't working as soloist, they work together in a God ordained symphony. With Christ as our new identity, we have been brought into a new family where we live out our faith with "one-another." Living any other way will suck the life, joy, and fullness of God's family design.

Whats the "big deal" about the Church? Is it even necessary? Some have even suggested that is is irrelevant in todays modern age of modern man. Who started it? What is it's source of power?What is it's mission? And who are its enemies? This miracle, "the Church" is more relevant than most people think, and more necessary that we as Christians have ever considered.

Spirit-filling is not evident in careless, thoughtless, structure-less spontaneity, but in godly wisdom and in orderliness. It is not seen in those who exalt themselves (even by actions and words which seem spiritual), but by submitting ourselves to doing that which edifies and builds up our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Why does Jesus give gifts to the His Church? Is it for our own personal enjoyment? Paul say NO! The gifts Jesus gives are for God's glory, for the building up of the Church, to unite us, to mature us, and to be rooted in love. Be encouraged by this truth as we dig deep into the word of God.

What is the one thing that potentially could destroy the Church? truth be told...CHRISTIANS! While Jjesus said the "gates of hell would not prevail against His Church," sometimes Christians do the most damage to its body through the self-harm of dis-unity. In these scriptures, the Apostle Paul wants the Ephesian Church to live in the axiom of belief and behavior, doctrine and duty, and theology and practicality. TO lean on one side or the other is an imbalance that destroys the Church and our witness to the world.
