I hope you will join me this Sunday for the third and final instalment of “In the Fellowship of Saints” based on Eph. 5:3-21.
To date we have looked at the various behaviours that Paul describes as either inappropriate or appropriate for Christians in light of the salvation we have received in Christ. Sprinkled throughout the passage he drops a few reminders as to our motivation for following these behavioural directives and I plan to close the series with a closer look at a few of these.
Are the exhortations to avoid “foolish talk” or “crude joking” meant to be a prohibition against humour?
Is the reminder of the “coming wrath of God on the sons of disobedience” a warning that poor Christian performance may result in eternal damnation?
How important is this idea of “submitting to one another”, and what if I do not respect the person I am being asked to submit to?
I hope to see you Sunday as we delve into these important issues and more.
