Last Sunday we began a new sermon series working our way through the book of Ephesians. In using the analogy of a football team, I presented the idea that we need to be sure that we fully understand the basics of God's work of salvation in our lives and his purposes for us as a part of his Body, the church. We're on God's team and we need to work together as a team.
This Sunday, August 13th, we'll talk about "the name on the back of your jersey". You've not only been chosen to be on God's team, but you've also been given a whole new identity because of it. Paul uses the imagery of adoption to describe this and it's a powerful way to look at it! I hope you'll be able to join us and celebrate this Good News!
