Notes for September 20

ONE Body 

9.13.15

John 17:22–23 (NLT)           
22 “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. 23 I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.

Ephesians 4:3–4 (NLT)       
3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.

BIG IDEA: WE ARE ONE BODY

THOUGHT 01 – YOU ARE GIFTED.

Ephesians 4:11–13 (NLT)   
11 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12 Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. 13 This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.

THOUGHT 02 – EVERYONE HAS A PLACE.

Romans 12:5 (NLT)
5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

THOUGHT 03 – THE BODY TAKES WORK.

Ephesians 2:8–10 (NLT)
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
