    'Life Plan' by Pastor Vern

    September 9, 2016

    Ephesians 5: 1-20                                                                                              

    As we approach Communion today we are reminded in scripture that following God not only gives us purpose but also simplifies our lives and gives us instructions. Letting go of our stubbornness and unhealthy patterns is really helpful in setting a new course of action for productive living.

     1 Be imitators of God – vrs 1

    a)      Live in love – vrs 2

    • ·         Be genuine
    • ·         Full of compassion
    • ·         Don’t misuse God’s name
    • ·         Love, acceptance and forgiveness

    b)      Live as children of light – vrs 8

    • ·         Intentional direction - choose
    • ·         Confident actions
    • ·         Purposeful living
    • ·         Seek opportunities for right actions

     2 Be careful to live wisely – vrs 15  

    a)      Use time wisely – be productive

    b)      Use resources wisely

    c)       Make the most of our opportunities

    d)      Don’t be reckless or foolish

    e)      Discover what the Lord’s will is and do it

    f)       Be willing to step out in faith and risk for Jesus

     3 Be filled with the Holy Spirit – vrs 18     

    a)      We are given God’s power

    b)      Learn to live with God’s power victoriously everyday

    c)       Holy life – ‘wholesome’ – made to be whole
