At times we have big life questions, such as, “How can I know God’s will for me?”, or, “How do I follow God where God wants me to be?” When God came to the young Solomon, who is to govern and lead God’s people, God offers Solomon whatever he would like.

God Builds a Cross-Shaped Church

Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 59 secs
In his letter to the Ephesian Christians, Paul compares us, God’s community, his church, to a building. The key is the cross of Christ; the foundation is the apostles and prophets, called to speak God’s Word concerning Christ and to witness to Christ and his resurrection; and Christ Jesus himself is the cornerstone, the foundation stone. What’s more, in Jesus we are built by God to be his cross-shaped church in the world. What does this mean?

The ideas in the letter to the Ephesians about being ‘chosen’ and ‘adopted’ were extremely potent in the ancient world.

So imagine, if you can, being adopted by God! (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/JTIXH258-qk ) [Organ - Pentecost 7]
