Church on Fire

I’m Still Standing

Elton John sings about being abandoned in love but he's a survivor still standing. Paul after telling us to sit & walk in this resurrected life now says stand. As if rescued from drowning we stand delivered on the shore.Like a tree planted by a river. We aren’t standing in our strength but in His.

Order in the Court

Order in the Court is part of our Church on Fire series. We are in Ephesians, talking about resurrection. Resurrection is the message of the church. We are not just taking a stroll. We are actually going somewhere. There is a right way and wrong way to walk. There should be order in the church, God controlled order.

God’s 7 Verbs

There are 15 named churches in the NT and 13 had letters written to them. But Ephesians is the only one that didn’t receive any rebuke.
We know it’s not because they were perfect. Timothy was their pastor so we read about the problems he faced in the books of Timothy. Paul was their pastor for three years (book of acts.).
