Worship & Communion

This week, we take time to stop and breathe in deep the grace of God as a community.

Teaching Notes

 

WHAT’S TRUE OF YOU THAT YOU NEVER KNEW:

FOR not FROM as a result FROM not FOR

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.    Ephesians 1:3

  • God wants something FOR you more than He wants something FROM you.
  • As a result you live FROM a place of blessing not FOR a blessing.

 

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.     Romans 8:28-39

PRAYER:
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.    Ephesians 1:17-19

More from Unnoticed Grace

So often, we take the most fundamental things for granted—everything from a beating heart to a place to belong. Perhaps the greatest thing we take for granted is grace. There is this intangible thread that carries us through this life - often unnoticed, often forgotten - that is woven together by the God who created us. It is the unmerited favor that marks us as believers in Jesus. Taking time to notice these fundamental aspects of our Christ-centered identity can change everything about how we live and who we are. Join us as we turn our attention to how unnoticed grace is nearer and far greater than we realize.
