The Gospel Walk (Ephesians 5:1-21)

October 30, 2016 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: Ephesians - The Gospel Life

Topic: Sermons Passage: Ephesians 5:1–21

There’s several things going on this Sunday, all at the same time. First of all, it’s Reformation Sunday. This is the 499th Anniversary of Martin Luther posted his explosive 95 theses on the Wittenburg Church Door. He didn’t realize it at the time, but it changed his life, it changed the church, and it changed the world. We’re going to talk a little more about that on Sunday.

Second, we’ll be celebration the Lord’s Supper together. Martin Luther reminds us, “The Lord’s Supper is given as a daily food and sustenance so that our faith may refresh and strengthen itself and not weaken in the struggle but grow continually stronger. For the new life should be one that continually develops and progresses. Meanwhile it must suffer much opposition. The devil is a furious enemy; when he sees that we resist him and attack the old man, and when he cannot rout us by force, he sneaks and skulks about everywhere, trying all kinds of tricks, and does not stop until he has finally worn us out so that we either renounce our faith or yield hand and foot and become indifferent or impatient. For such times, when our heart feels too sorely oppressed, this comfort of the Lord’s Supper is given to bring us new strength and refreshment.” And since we live in days of great deception, indifference, and impatience, it’s obvious that we need the Lord’s Supper!

And third, we will look at the Apostle Paul’s great passage in Ephesians 5:1-21, where we’re told to “walk in love, walk in the light, and to look carefully how we walk.” And so this week we’re looking at the Gospel Walk and what does that look like in our everyday, ordinary lives. As always, it’s so much easier said than done. So learning how to walk in faith, or how to live in such a way that our lives our daily influenced by the gospel, will help us see how the Gospel works in our lives, in our church, and in our world. Come Sunday to learn more! See you then, Dr. Dave

PS – And don’t forget about our Fall Festival. Good food, good fun, good friends – sounds pretty reformed to me! Hope to see you there!
