The Bible goes to great lengths to make a strong connection between families, faith and the church.  Nowhere is this done more clearly than in the book of Ephesians.  In Christ Jesus we are “predestined… for adoption” into God’s family (Eph 1:5). Through faith in Christ we become members of the household of God” (Eph 2:19).  In Ephesians 5 husbands are instructed to love their wives “as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her” (Eph 5:25).

As the disciples of Jesus disputed about which one of them would have the best seat, who would have the place of prominence, Jesus interrupted their argument by declaring, “It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matt 20:26-28)

‘If it were easy everyone would be doing it’. That comment is usually heard in a statement of admiration for some special feat or talent. Often it is preceded with “It looks easy, but….”. Unity is not easy, even among brothers and sisters in Christ. If it were easy we would not be so used to seeing the casualties of conflict, strained relationships, divided churches and broken fellowship.

Throughout Scripture there are several word-pictures used to describe the people of God, God’s relationship to His people, and the people’s relationships to each other. In the Old Testament the three primary images are that of the bride, the vineyard and the flock. In the New Testament these three are used, as well as the image of a building (or a temple), a family, and a body. The Lord wants us to understand what it means to be the body of Christ and what it means to be a functioning member of that body. To help us understand these principles we look to Paul’s description of the human body as an analogy for the church.

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25) Jesus loves His church, and to love Christ as we should is to love what he loves. We should love the local church as deeply and unconditionally as Jesus does. Our prayer is that this sermon series will be used by God to accomplish this.
