God Speaks to Kids, Parents, Slaves, and Masters; How to Behave in God's Family
April 2, 2017 Series: Becoming Mature
Topic: Maturity Passage: Ephesians 6:1–6:9
This week we begin Chapter 6 in Ephesians! Nearing the finish line in this great epistle. God keeps speaking to every part of His family. Husbands, Wives, Kids, Parents, Slaves, Masters - to all of us individually and collectively. He wants us to know how to behave in the Family.
John Stott: "The overarching theme of Ephesians is that through Christ's reconciling work there is now one multinational, multicultural family of God."
The individual family units that make up our Church Body are governed by the Gospel just like our whole church is. God Cares About Relationships - God Cares About How We Treat Each Other - God Has Structured the Best Way to Live Together.

Pray particularly for the young people this week to hear God speak to them from the text! Nah, pray for us all, we desperately need to 'hear' Father speak to us again! Thanks, H
