Rooted & Grounded in Love – September 16, 2015

Today’s Translation: Holman Christian Standard Bible | Weekly Video: Rooted in Love (Ephesians 3:14-21)

“I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love.” – Ephesians 3:17-18

Live It Out!

As Christians, our lives must be rooted and grounded in Christ’s love for us. Never forget who Jesus is and what He came to do for you when He took your place on the cross. If Jesus thinks you are worth dying for, then who cares what anyone else thinks? Jesus loves you – build your life around that truth.

God Is with Us – September 15, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Voice Bible | Weekly Video: Rooted in Love (Ephesians 3:14-21)

“Father, out of Your honorable and glorious riches, strengthen Your people. Fill their souls with the power of Your Spirit so that through faith the Anointed One will reside in their hearts. May love be the rich soil where their lives take root. May it be the bedrock where their lives are founded so that together…” – Ephesians 3:16-17

Live It Out!

Just like our loved ones are always with us in our hearts, God is always present. We are washed clean by the blood of Christ, which means we are God’s holy temple! God is not an absentee father or a hands-off landlord; He loves us perfectly, and He will never leave us.

God Is Our Father – September 14, 2015

Today’s Translation: New Living Translation | Weekly Video: Rooted in Love (Ephesians 3:14-21)

“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.” – Ephesians 3:14-16

Live It Out!

The God who created the universe loves us as His own children. Therefore, we should base our identities in Him rather than in the temporal things of this world. Everything we see will one day fade away, but God’s love for us will endure forever.

Love Is Our Foundation – September 12, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Amplified Bible | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34)

“The scribe said to Him, “Admirably answered, Teacher; You truthfully stated that He is One, and there is no other but Him; and to love Him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to [unselfishly] love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”” – Ephesians 3:32-33

Live It Out!

Love should be the foundation of who we are as Christians and as the Church. How we live at home, at work or at school is more important than what we do on Sunday mornings. The world is watching, show them what it means to put love into action.

Love Your Neighbor – September 11, 2015

Today’s Translation: New International Version | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34)

“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” – Ephesians 3:31

Live It Out!

Once upon a time, we used to depend on our neighbors to survive, but, today, we live very isolated lives. Instead of focusing on your own happiness, look for ways to be a blessing to someone else.

Love God with Your Mind & Strength – September 10, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Message | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34)

“Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’” – Ephesians 3:29-30

Live It Out!

Loving God with your mind and strength means being active and intentional rather than being a blind follower who simply goes through the motions. God asks everything of us because He was willing to give everything when He sent His Son to die on the cross. Be passionate, and put your faith into action!

Love God with Your Heart & Soul – September 9, 2015

Today’s Translation: Holman Christian Standard Bible | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34)

““This is the most important,” Jesus answered: Listen, Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” – Ephesians 3:29-30

Live It Out!

Loving God with your heart and soul means loving Him with depth and sincerity. Your heart should stir when you are doing the things God has called you to do. And your soul should ache for all the people who are broken and without hope. Let your love of God be what drives you.

Listen to God – September 8, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Voice Bible | Weekly Video: Called to Love (Mark 12:28-34)

Jesus: “The most important commandment is this: “Hear, O Israel, the Eternal One is our God, and the Eternal One is the only God…”” – Ephesians 3:29

Live It Out!

When asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus recites what is known as “The Great Shema.” The Hebrew word shema means ‘to listen or to hear,’ and immediately precedes many important passages in the Old Testament. As Christians, we should always be listening to the wise words of our Heavenly Father by reading our Bibles.

We Are Hollowed Ground – September 5, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Amplified Bible | Weekly Video: We Are One (Ephesians 4:1-6)

“I therefore, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been called [with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service, Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another. Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.

[There is] one body and one Spirit— just as there is also one hope [that belongs] to the calling you received— [There is] one Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of [us] all, Who is above all [Sovereign over all], pervading all and [living] in [us] all.” – Ephesians 4:1-6 (AMP)

Live It Out!

Cemeteries and memorials are considered ‘hollowed ground’ because of the people who are laid to rest there. So much more should our bodies to be considered ‘hollowed ground’ because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The presence of God lives within our souls! Let us treat each other with the same respect and reverence we would when treading on ‘hollowed ground.’

We Are One in the Spirit – September 4, 2015

Today’s Translation: New International Version | Weekly Video: We Are One (Ephesians 4:1-6)

“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” – Ephesians 4:1-6 (NIV)

Live It Out!

Our job is not to create unity; it is to protect and maintain the unity already built by the presence of the Holy Spirit. Because the Holy Spirit lives inside of each and every Christian, we are all the Church together!

Jesus Is the Way – September 3, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Message | Weekly Video: We Are One (Ephesians 4:1-6)

“In light of all this, here’s what I want you to do. While I’m locked up here, a prisoner for the Master, I want you to get out there and walk— better yet, run!— on the road God called you to travel. I don’t want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don’t want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline— not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.

You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.” – Ephesians 4:1-6 (MSG)

Live It Out!

The world tells you to find yourself by traveling down many different roads and following the one that makes you feel the most happy. The Bible tells us to travel the narrow road to heaven because Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life. The Christian life may not be the easiest path to travel, but it will most certainly be worth it in the end.

“Therefore I, the prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, accepting one another in love, diligently keeping the unity of the Spirit with the peace that binds us. There is one body and one Spirit— just as you were called to one hope at your calling— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.” – Ephesians 4:1-6 (HCSB)

Live It Out!

Despite our different denominations and traditions, all Christians have been saved through the blood of Christ. Jesus gave everything for us out of love, so let’s give our lives back to Him in return. We are one in Him!

Let’s Build for the Future – September 1, 2015

Today’s Translation: The Voice Bible | Weekly Video: We Are One (Ephesians 4:1-6)

“As a prisoner of the Lord, I urge you: Live a life that is worthy of the calling He has graciously extended to you. Be humble. Be gentle. Be patient. Tolerate one another in an atmosphere thick with love. Make every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit has already created, with peace binding you together. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were all called to pursue one hope. There is one Lord Jesus, one living faith, one ceremonial washing through baptism, and one God— the Father over all who is above all, through all, and in all.” – Ephesians 4:1-6 (VOICE)

Live It Out!

Living a life worthy of the calling we have received means living for something much more than yourself. As Christians, we are a part of something bigger than anything this world has to offer — the kingdom of God. Live in such a way to leave a positive mark for future generations both inside and outside the Church.
