One Body, part 1: Planned

John relayed God’s call for people to repent, God’s announcement of His own coming, and God’s work of making the path straight. Left to ourselves, we would all reject the condemnation, the call to repent, and would try and get out of it. But, God is the one standing with the plumb line, building a new wall that is straight. He is the one with the plan. He is the one who chooses us. He is the one who makes us His. It has always been His plan to unite all things in Heaven and on Earth together in One Body in and through Christ.

From Series: " One Body "

This 4-week series follows the Pentecost lectionary schedule, beginning with the seventh Sunday after Pentecost. As we continue on the journey with Jesus, and see how God works through His people, we see the unity that God has established between God and man, and between all of His people. This has always been the plan, and God sent the one Savior, Jesus, to gather and care for His people, the Spirit to work the one faith the hearts of man, and gifted us to be work well as one body, one church. This is all God’s work, His choice, His establishing, supporting, building, and gifting of His one people, the One Body of Christ. During the Pentecost II series, both the Gospel and the Epistle (mostly from Mark and Ephesians) are emphasized by the theme for the day, so they are both highlighted.
