Prepare for Worship: Notes for services on November 9, 2014

"Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"

Rick Hutton on Ephesians 4:11-16


We come together every week, sing together, get challenged by great messages, and spend time talking to one another, but is this what it means to be the church?  In this week's passage, Paul lays out his thoughts for the church–God's people–and how He works in and through us as we live out what it means to be the church.  So what is God's vision for the church?  This week, Rick Hutton will guide us in thinking about the image of the Body of Christ and how being the Body is the expression of what God desires us to be.


11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
