Transcript of I am a Church Member Series

I will Unite with Others--Eph.2:11-22
I am a Church Member Series
I Don't Just go to church, I am the church.
Series Big Idea:
United Front:
You can't have community without unity
Big Idea:
We share a common starting point=all cut off from God.
Hebrews 10:24-25
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the day approaching.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
1 Cor.1:10--I appeal to you brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there by no divisions among you
John 17:23--that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me.
Psalm 133:1--how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity. It's like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard.
Eph.4:3---make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace
Warning against division:
Mark 3:24-25--If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand.
Titus 3:10-11--as for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him...
Prov.6--one who sows discord among brothers
Rom.16:17--watch out for those who cause divisions...avoid them.
Separated from Christ=no relationship with God
excluded from citizenship in Israel=no family benefit plan.
Strangers of the covenants of promise=no hope of future blessings
Without hope=no expectation of being delivered
Without God=in a desperate situation.
We share a common transformation
Jeremiah 23:23--Behold I am a God that brings near and not a God that repels.
We share a common peace
One nation with one King
We share a new relationship
Children of God
John 1:12
To all who received him, to those who believed in his name He gave the right to become children of God.
Romans 8:15-16--we cry Abba, Father. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
Eph.1:2-4--God adopted us as sons and daughters through Jesus
We Share a common foundation
Foundation of the Word
Cornerstone=Jesus
together becoming a dwelling for God
Pray about what's preventing unity
Lack of Trust
Psalm 9:10--those who know your name trust in you, for you have never forsaken those who seek you.
Lack of Forgiveness
Col.3:14--Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive.
Commitment:
I will be a unifying church member because you can't have community without unity.
Ephesians 3:16-21
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. And I pray that we, being rooted and established in love may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19--and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imaging, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever, AMEN!
