PRAYER;. Bible Passage Ephesians 4:11-24 Text: Ephesians 4:11-16 Today I am continuing my previous two Studies in Ephesians 4 given in February and March, headed "Equipped for Service (Ministry) " based on verses 11-13 in chapter 4.

Let's see what each US note prints: IN GOD WE TRUST, we trust God, this is the beginning of the United States! Today we will hear what the apostle Paul said: “Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness” (Rom 4:9). He meant to say: To see Abraham's righteousness from his trust in God. Why do we need to see Abraham's righteousness from his faith? Let’s take a look at what Abraham’s faith is, what kind of action his faith includes.

WHAT GETS OUR ATTENTION ?

SIRENS--- CAR HORNS---THE BABY CRYING---- THE SMELL OF

SMOKE--- THE RED LIGHT ON THE CAR DASH 

ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY

 

There are so many things in life today that are out to get our attention. The wailing sirens of police cars and ambulances, the blaring of car horns in the city. Has anybody been to New York? The noise is unbelievable!

The question ‘what is man?’ is a question put before us in Psalm 8. It is a question which has occupied the mind of humanity though history. What is the measure of man? What gives humans value, identity and purpose?

Introduction

Things change

Like many people in this room, I grew up in Australia. 

  • For me,

  • That was in Sydney,

  • And I’m still there today. 

And a lot has changed in Sydney, in Australia, just in my life time.

We love in a foggy world. We can see things like the wall and the chair, but the really important things like:

           What’s God like?

           What does God want me to do?

           What’s going to happen to me when I die?

We’re really unsure about these. And so were the disciples. But Jesus wasn’t.

It must be very hard for people living near the controversial road construction to cushion the sound of heavy machinery doing battle against earth.The energy expended ends up as sound and heat and dust.It is heavy work. Isaiah 1-39 overall ,has been described as the pounding words of God  waging war  against the conscience of Judah. Chapter 40 is like the peace which comes when all the tractors and heavy equipment are signalled away.
