In the second installment of the “Destined” series, Pastor Dwayne looks at Paul discussing how Christians never arrive at a destiny alone in Ephesians chapter 2. He uses the passage to deal with several issues including what your destiny requires of you.
People of Fellowship
Destined, Part 02
Everyone arrives somewhere. Christians arrive at a predetermined destiny.
You NEVER arrive at a Christian destiny alone.
Ephesians 2:12-13 – remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2:22 – And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
What Your Destiny Requires of You
Treat others unselfishly.
Ephesians 4:2a – Be completely humble and gentle;
Be patient with others.
Ephesians 4:2b – be patient…
Bear with one another in love:
Ephesians 4:2b – …bearing with one another in love.
Stop focusing on a person’s performance and have faith.
Ephesians 4:3 – 3Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
