Sunday June 22, 2014 at Dakota Community Church

And so the letter to the Ephesians winds down with this final stirring passage.
Paul has taken us on an incredible journey.
Beginning with the ultimate plan and purpose of God, laid down in eternity past before the foundation of the world. 
Good news; a plan of redemption for all mankind, to bring about a single new human race through the death burial and resurrection of Jesus, to unite Jew and Gentile, male and female, slave and free.  Different, but equal in value. 
To unite the church and all of creation under His Lordship that we might live lives “worthy of the calling” in Christ.
Demonstrating unity, diversity, purity, and love in mutual submission for His Glory in the church, in our marriages and families, in our vocations, and in all the world. That the world might be drawn to Him, that they might know Him, that He might be glorified!

What a vision, what a plan! 

We stand ready to walk it out. “Amen, and amen, let’s get to it; Your kingdom come, Your will be done.” 
And they all lived happily ever after…

Not quite…
