“Here is the church. Here is the steeple. Open the doors and see all the people.”
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study on The Church, in which we take time consider how God has organized His great flock.
People all around the world congregate in small, local gatherings in their neighborhood churches to worship. But how does that reflect the nature of the grander-sized, universal Church — God’s people in all generations?
And, perhaps more importantly, how do we as believers live in light of that great “oneness” we all share in Christ?
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine in this message. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Difficulty arises because those whom God has called to be His are made up of people from so many backgrounds that division seems likely. For this reason, Paul instructs his readers to better understand the unity they have in Christ and how that unity is to be lived out in our daily experience.
