This week we'll be studying Ephesians 5:3-20 under the theme "Guided by the Spirit." Paul is starting to get very specific in his applications of the gospel in the lives of believers. This week, he addresses two major issues for believers - sexual immorality and drunkenness. For instance "How far is too far?" in our dating relationships?  What does it mean to be filled with the Spirit rather than being filled with alcohol? Where do we find the motivation to resist common pleasure outlets in a fallen world? Paul will tells us how the Spirit guides us.

This week we'll be studying Ephesians 4:17-5:2 under the theme "The Christian Lifestyle." After the Apostle Paul told us the basis of our salvation by God's grace in chapters 1-3, he's now giving us the details of what it looks like to apply that salvation to our daily lives. In this text, he tells us to "put off the old self" that consists of worldly values, and "put on the new self" by aiming for honesty, calm, hard work, positive talk, and forgiveness. These new behaviors do not contribute to a new status, but flow out of the new status that has been gifted to us, as "dearly loved children of God."

This week we'll be studying Ephesians 4:1-16 under the theme "A Gifted Body: Principles of the Christian Walk." This week, we shift into the second half of Ephesians, which gives us careful instruction for our walk with Christ in this life. Specifically, we'll be looking at God's desire for unity amongst Christians, the reality of the Church's giftedness, and our capacity to mature, transform, and develop as his body.

As a follower of Jesus, our citizenship first is in the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Our allegiance lies with His values, with His family, with His heart for the world, and with His commands.  Being a Christian in America means that we can gather with the church freely, that we can speak and work for justice and truth, and that we can share my faith with others.  We celebrate today recognizing that there is beauty in America, and there is also deep brokenness to which we move towards with faith, believing the Lord can and will redeem this nation to Himself.  Pastor Jeske's bible study focuses on the theme Respect Your Government as he digs into Nehemiah 2:1-8.

This week we'll be studying Ephesians 3:14-21 under the theme "The Experience of Christ." In this text, Paul offers his second lengthy prayer of the letter. He's asking here that the believers in Ephesus would experientially come to grips the dimensions of God's love. He's articulating the distinction between knowing about Jesus, and knowing Jesus personally. For some, this seems like an arbitrary distinction, but we'll discuss this week the importance as well as strategies to keeping the relationship.
