Learning On The Way
We have already talked about the riches we have in Christ quite a bit in Ephesians. Can you recall some of those riches we have heard about? Can you think of some that we haven’t named specifically? How does the riches we have in Christ encourage you to endure the difficulties in life?
Do you think being one in Christ means we lose our cultural identities? How do you think we can have harmony in diversity? What are some ways you think that displays the wisdom of God to earthly and spiritual beings? How can we do a better job joining the purposes of God in displaying His wisdom through the church?
Have some of the pressures we have felt recently (talk of recession, inflation, Christian principles being targeted…) caused you to begin to lose heart? How does the fact that God is working through the church for His glory encourage you? Share some ways you have been encouraged (and encourage us too).
