God knows us intimately. From conception to final breath, he intends good for us. He authored a beautiful, complex, and fragile conception process. He grants us dignity as image-bearers for all of our determined days. The psalmist reflects on these weighty realities in vv. 13-18, proclaiming he is "fearfully and wonderfully made." The poetry accords with what science has revealed about DNA, brain function, and fetal development. Human life is a gift--a public and personal good that points us to God.

Evil exists in our world. If we're not careful, we'll feed it or fall into its trap. Fortunately, the apostle Paul describes a posture, perspective, and protection available to us as we battle spiritual powers. And, when in doubt, we can pray: it is the bottom line weapon in apprehending God's protection over us.

The nuclear family is broken. Many cultural forces have driven a wedge between husbands and wives, children and parents. Sadly, with the family fractured, it struggles to achieve its two main purposes: moral formation and mission. Today's passage reflects on a biblical household code. The apostle Paul views the family as a case study in Christlikeness. He assumes the world is watching. All houses should be glass houses: incubators for growth and examples of godliness. Lets make our homes secure again.

Sometimes we can buy knock off brands and generic products. They're close enough to the real thing that we'll gladly accept them. But no one likes a cheap imitation. RC Cola can't rival Coke. Rose Art can't copy Crayola. In Ephesians, the apostle Paul calls us to imitate Jesus. He's the real thing. We can imitate him by living a life of purity, mission, and wisdom. Without these attributes or the aid of His Spirit, our lives are a cheap imitation.

We are all called to gospel. We preach the good news to ourselves, other believers, and lost people. We have reasons we don't follow through: fear, lack of clarity, unseen opportunities. This message will help us see the gospel working from the inside out, so that even at a Walmart checkout line we might find ourselves sharing the love of Jesus.

We all want to experience renewal in certain areas of our lives: physical health, financial freedom, flourishing relationships, academics, career, and overcoming old temptations. Unfortunately, change does not happen by pure determination. Renewal requires a plan. The apostle Paul lays this out in Ephesians 4:17-32. To experience renewal, we must replace our stinkin' thinkin' and stay focused on God; we must replace corrupting habits with Christlike ones. Fortunately, God's Spirit helps us in this change process.

Too often we view spiritual growth as an individual exercise. We do personal devotions. We make personal commitments. We mark personal progress in our individual battle against sin. We call these achievements "spiritual growth." Unfortunately, we miss a key component to God's plan for spiritual growth: the body. Ephesians 4:1-16 makes it clear, spiritual growth is a group effort. Paul urges believers to go in the same direction (character), agree to the core doctrine, and get to the final destination (Christlikeness).

God can do amazing things. Prayer attunes our eyes to his wonders. When we pray, we sense Him building our core, flooding our hearts, and blowing our minds. This prayer from Ephesians 3:14-21 teaches us three audacious ways to talk to God. In the end, we say, "Father, wow!"

God has given us, the church, a crucial role in His grand plan. He calls us to minister and serve, like the apostle Paul did. Our ministries are diverse and adversity may come, but Jesus wants us to join him in witnessing to the world. This is his Great Reveal.

God calls us to be peacemakers not gatekeepers. In our politically, racially, ideologically divided age, this is a crucial task. Making peace not only requires courage but a deep sense of Jesus's saving work. He moved us from isolation into his family. He reconciled us from a place of hostility toward God and others. His Spirit lives within us, making us a new kind of person as a witness to the world. This passage looks at the horizontal element of salvation. Peacemaking is one of the good works God has laid out before us.
