We are now having one worship service on Sunday's, beginning at 9:15 am.  We have provided an overflow area to allow for more distancing, along with broadcasting our morning worship service to the parking lot via an FM transmitter.  Please contact the church office with any questions.    

Bear with One Another, and Speak truth with One Another

April 10, 2016 Series: One Another

Scripture: Ephesians 4:1–4:25

I. The urgency of unity (1-16; 3:8-10)
     A. A worthy (equal weight) calling. How then do we fulfill our calling?
     B. A Spirit-filled control. Covered with humility, gentleness, and kindness. Look to 5:18, and be under the control of the Spirit of God to produce what is right. We can't produce the things of the Spirit without the Spirit (Galatians 5).
     C. A grace-gifted church. To the goal of verse 16!
II. The necessity of newness (17-25)
The person who says they believe in God must live in a way that shows that they believe in God.
     A. Must put off the old self.
     B. Must put on the new self.
     C. The priority of speaking truth (Acts 5 - they lied to God) when we lie, we are speaking the devil's language.
