Could you imagine if Christians were known for the way they love others? Rather than the negative stereotypes about being hateful, judgmental, close-minded people, what if we became known for our love? There’s danger in posturing yourself to be seen as a loving-person, because then it could merely be a persona rather than a characteristic that is genuinely who you are. At the same time, I fear that we’ve become so concerned about being right that we’ve forgotten to be kind.

Is it possible to be a Christian who walks in darkness? There are many who have grown up in the church (and some who even attend regularly!) whose lives do not reflect the light of God throughout the week. 1 John 1:5 is one of the most important verses in the entire book, “God is light, in him there is no darkness at all.” John continues by making it clear that Christians who walk in darkness and refuse to confess (and repent) of their sin are not Christians at all. If God is light but we walk in darkness then we have no fellowship with God and no fellowship with each other. Instead, when we walk in darkness but claim to have fellowship with God then “we lie and do not practice the truth” (v.6).

Elwell, Tyndale’s Dictionary of the Bible states that fellowshipis Communion with God which results in common participation with other believers in the Spirit of God.

The Apostle John states,"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life….We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.4We write this to make our joy complete." 1 John 1:1 –4 (NIV84)

Last year I Becky and went to some friends house for the Super Bowl. We were down at halftime and Becky and I thought about leaving. “Its over there is no way they are coming back.” But, we decided to stay with our friends and watch.

Matthew 28:18-20 is often called “The Great Commission” because it contains Jesus’ final command to his disciples. It’s a popular passage regarding global missions (for good reason!), but its importance extends beyond global missions and straight to the heart of the Church’s identity and mission. This Sunday, we will break it down as simple as one, two, three.

If you were to imagine the greatest way to put the gospel on display to the world, what would be your strategy? This is the question Ephesians 5:18-6:9 addresses, because God chose to put the gospel on display through gospel-centered churches and families. Ephesians 5:21 instructs believers to “submit to one another out of reference for Christ” and then addresses three pairs of relationships where loving-leadership and humble-submission are embodiments of the gospel.
