This sermon was preached via Zoom at our Sunday morning service on September 26, 2021, when our church was unable to gather due to covid restrictions in place at the time. The passage studied is Ephesians 5:22-6:9. The following is a brief introduction to the sermon.
In Ephesians 4:1, Paul urges us to ‘walk in a manner worthy of the calling’ to which we have been called as children of God and as members of the church of Christ. We have been saved and born again as children of God – with a new nature, and with the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. We are to walk in a way compatible with our new nature, our new hope and our new identity as children of God. And this new walk will change the way we live in the church, in the world and in the home. And this passages addresses how we are to walk in self-giving love in our homes and places of work.
