Happy Labor Day! The Lord be with you today.
This is a late post from this weekend. My site went down Saturday. So you get Labor Day Shout-Outs today. Enjoy!
Yesterday, I continued my Ephesians series with a message entitled, “Be Imitators of God” (Ephesians 5:1-6). What does it take to be imitators of God?
I. Walk in Love (5:1-2).
A. Imitate the Love of God the Father (v. 1)
B. Walk in the Love of God the Son (v. 2)
II. Say No to Defiling Sins (5:3-4).
A. Abstain from immoral behavior (v. 3)
B. Abstain from filthy language (v. 4)
III. Remember Your Identity in Christ (5:5-6).
A. Be sure of Your Kingdom Citizenship (v. 5).
B. Don’t be Deceived about the Consequences of Sin (v. 6).
We are looking forward to hosting the Cutting It Straight Expository Preaching Conference at the Shiloh Church in Jacksonville – September 22-24, 2015. This conference exists to train, promote, and model faithful Bible exposition. There will also be tracks for Worship & Arts and Youth Ministry. Please pray God’s blessings on this event. Hope to see you there!
