The New Life, part 3: Full Hearts

From Series: " The New Life "

This 4-week series follows the Pentecost lectionary schedule, beginning with the eleventh Sunday after Pentecost. As one body, we now move to what life in that body is like. No longer are we defined by the world, or in the same ways we were. This new life, the beginning of eternal life, is entirely centered on Christ, and follows His heart and pattern. His Word give us eyes to see clearly, He has our hearts, and fills us with His love for God and others, and tied to His life, which is eternal, we can’t lose the battle that sin and the Devil are waging for creation. During the Pentecost III series, both the Gospel and the Epistle (from Ephesians) are emphasized by the theme for the day, so they are both highlighted.
