    Labor and Management

    21/06/2020 Duração: 55min

    As Brother Danny concludes Paul’s discussion about Christian relationships, we cover an especially pertinent passage in chapter 6, verses 5-9. In this passage Christian bondservants (slaves, workers) are admionished to remember that their true master is Christ. Likewise, Christian masters (owners, employers) are also admonished to remember that the Lord is master of their lives as well, and Christians are calld to be different than the world in the way they treat others. /// Scripture: Ephesians 6:5-9 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: June 21st, 2020 | Running Time: 55:11

  • Must the Generation Gap Win

    Must the Generation Gap Win

    14/06/2020 Duração: 56min

    As we continue through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, Paul continues his look at the Christian life and how it correlates to our relationships, today with the emphasis on the parent-child relationship. Even though the original readers of Paul’s letter would have been very familiar with the concept parental authority, Paul reminds these Christian children that is it right to obey their parents “in the Lord.” He also advises parents to not lay expectations and standards upon their children that would drive them to anger and wrath, and could potentially drive them away from serving Jesus. /// Scripture: Ephesians 6:1-4 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: June 14th, 2020 | Running Time: 56:59

  • The Key to Being a Godly Husband

    The Key to Being a Godly Husband

    07/06/2020 Duração: 47min

    Following Paul’s thought that Christian relationships ought to be built on a foundation of mutual submission and love, Brother Danny shares with the church from Ephesians chapter 5, verses 25-33. In this passage Paul explains to his readers that, in the marriage relationship, husbands are commanded to sacrificially choose to demonstrate love towards their wives in an active way. There is no room for tyranny or selfishness when you model your love after the love of Christ for the church. /// Scripture: Ephesians 5:25-33 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: June 7th, 2020 | Running Time: 47:03

  • Is Submission a Four-Letter Word?

    Is Submission a Four-Letter Word?

    30/05/2020 Duração: 42min

    After completing his instruction on putting off and putting on, Paul shifts to another theme, that of mutual submission among believers. He begins with his thesis - “submit to one another in love” - and continues by looking at the implications for several human relationships. The first up is husband and wife, and Paul starts by expressing how that looks from the wife’s perspective. Many in the faith have taken these verses to mean things that they do not mean; Bro. Danny explains how submission is a must in the lives of all believers, and how biblical submission is neither about inferiority nor force. /// Scripture: Ephesians 5:21-24 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: May 31st, 2020 | Running Time: 42:34

  • Walking in Wisdom

    Walking in Wisdom

    23/05/2020 Duração: 47min

    Paul wraps up his discussion of putting off and putting on by looking at the wisdom of God. We must pay attention to things that happen around us; we must discern the will of God; we must yield ourselves to the right control (His); and we must allow our hearts to be filled with the wonder of God, to the point where we cannot help but sing His praises. /// Scripture: Ephesians 5:15-20 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: May 24th, 2020 | Running Time: 47:13

  • Darkness and Light

    Darkness and Light

    16/05/2020 Duração: 38min

    Paul continues his theme of the transformation that Christ should have in the life of the believer. In today’s section, he emphasizes the importance of avoiding the paths of darkness, and walking instead in the light of who they now are. /// Scripture: Ephesians 5:3-14 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: May 17th, 2020 | Running Time: 38:51

  • Walking in Love

    Walking in Love

    09/05/2020 Duração: 44min

    Paul continues his theme of putting off and putting on by listing some of the sinful activities the Ephesian church was doing, and what they should do instead. The unloving actions were causing the world to question their faith, but by reorienting themselves to God’s purpose, they could begin living for Him. Paul calls us all to imitate God by walking in love. /// Scripture: Ephesians 4:25-5:2 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: May 10th, 2020 | Running Time: 44:54

  • Walking as the New Self

    Walking as the New Self

    02/05/2020 Duração: 39min

    Paul reminds the church at Ephesus that they are not who they once were; they are new creations in Christ. He reminded them that their prior way of living was contrary to what God wanted them to do, and that they had been given a new identity. They needed (and we need) to realize that this transformation must be intentional; we are not helpless to resist the draw of our old selves, but we must resist if we are to be who God wants us to be. /// Scripture: Ephesians 4:17-24 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: May 3rd, 2020 | Running Time: 39:21

  • Walking in Diversity

    Walking in Diversity

    25/04/2020 Duração: 37min

    In the passage we studied last week, Paul emphasized unity in Christ. In the verses immediately following, though, he also focuses on the diversity that exists within the Body of Christ, the church. All gifts are given by God, and should be used to build His church; and, while we may have different gifts, we should value all of them, and realize that none of us are non-essential parts of the Body. /// Scripture: Ephesians 4:7-16 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 26th, 2020 | Running Time: 37:48

  • Walking in Unity

    Walking in Unity

    18/04/2020 Duração: 43min

    As Paul pivots from doctrine to application, he begins by underscoring the importance of the church living in unity. He explains several aspects of this unity: that it is crucial to our living the lives to which God has called us; how it requires humility; how we should strive for peace; and how our living in unity reflects the work God has done in our lives. /// Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-6 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 19th, 2020 | Running Time: 43:15

  • Seeing, but Not Really

    Seeing, but Not Really

    11/04/2020 Duração: 34min

    The Gospels record two instances of Christ’s followers who saw Him after His resurrection, but did not recognize Him at first. The reality that they thought they knew did not match up with true reality, and the reality of Christ’s presence healed the immense pain they had in their hearts. /// Scripture: John 20:11-18, Luke 24:13-35 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 12th, 2020 | Running Time: 34:41

    I'm Praying for You!

    04/04/2020 Duração: 34min

    Paul’s prayer for his readers gives us a model for how we should pray for others. We should pray that they are filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, that they have a full experience of the love of Christ, and that the fullness of God will help them prevail in this world. /// Scripture: Ephesians 3:14-21 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 5th, 2020 | Running Time: 34:56

  • A Dream Come True

    A Dream Come True

    28/03/2020 Duração: 32min

    As Paul is writing to the churches in Asia Minor, he takes a rabbit trail to explain to his readers that God had called him to share the good news of hope to the Gentiles. We, too, have the charge to share the gospel, which brings hope both through its message and its messengers. /// Scripture: Ephesians 3:1-13 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 29th, 2020 | Running Time: 32:28

  • Two Becoming One

    Two Becoming One

    21/03/2020 Duração: 32min

    In the tradition of those who followed God, when Jesus came, there were two divisions - the Jews, who were on the inside as God’s chosen people; and Gentiles, who were everyone else. Paul tells the church at Ephesus that these two divisions no longer exist, because Jesus Christ has torn them down. His death is the instrument that brings us peace, and through Him, we can find wholeness and move beyond the barriers our world continues to erect today. /// Scripture: Ephesians 2:13-22 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 22nd, 2020 | Running Time: 32:34

  • We Now Belong

    We Now Belong

    16/03/2020 Duração: 43min

    In our message from the Book of Ephesians this morning, Brother Danny explains what Paul means in chapter 2, verses 11 through 13. As Paul has just concluded his exclamation that believers are God’s masterpiece, he goes on to explain that, though the Gentiles were once NOT in covenant with God, were once NOT in relationship with God, by His will and through His Son, they are now His people. And, just as those Gentiles in Ephesus have been adopted into God’s family, so have we. /// Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-13 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 15th, 2020 | Running Time: 43:45

  • Coming to Terms With Faith and Works

    Coming to Terms With Faith and Works

    09/03/2020 Duração: 47min

    Brother Danny continues taking us through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, today in chapter 2, verses 8 through 10. In these verses, Paul expresses first the nature of our salvation; that God alone is responisble for every aspect of our salvation. Second, Paul wants his readers to understand how dear we are to the Author of our salvation. As His masterpieces, God looks at us with love and joy. Finally, Paul explains that the Christian isn’t merely saved FROM something; as Christians, we are saved FOR the good works that God has prepared for us to do. /// Scripture: Ephesians 2:8-10 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 8th, 2020 | Running Time: 47:22

  • The Way We Were

    The Way We Were

    02/03/2020 Duração: 44min

    As Brother Danny takes us into chapter 2 of Paul’s letter to the Ephesian believers, he explains Paul’s statment in verse 1 of chapter 2 that all believers were, at the first, dead in ther sins. There is nothing they, or we, could do to effect our salvation. Without Christ, we would be doomed to a life of slavery. But, through an act of mercy, God reached out and changed us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Because of this salvation, believers everywhere should commit to letting our lives and our voices proclaim the good news wherever we go. /// Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-7 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 1st, 2020 | Running Time: 44:31

  • A Prayer of Thanksgiving and Truth

    A Prayer of Thanksgiving and Truth

    24/02/2020 Duração: 56min

    As Brother Danny continues taking us through the book of Ephesians, he shares chapter 1, verses 15-23 this morning. In these verses, Paul expresses his prayer of thanksgiving for the Ephesian believers. Paul thanked God for their growth, their love for other, and their love for God. As we examine this prayer of Paul’s, it would be healthy to consider whether our lives would inspire such a prayer from Paul. /// Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-23 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 23rd, 2020 | Running Time: 56:07

  • The Praise of His Glory

    The Praise of His Glory

    17/02/2020 Duração: 46h04min

    As Brother Danny wraps up Paul’s introduction in the book of Ephesians, he reminds us that our salvation was planned by God before the foundation of the world. Gentiles were not “plan b” in the kingdom of God. Also, he shows us that it is Jesus the Son who makes the gospel of salvation, and the fulfillment of God’s plan, possible. Finally, we have the presence of the Holy Spirit as the downpayment of our salvation and the glory which we will recieve. In this the whole Godhead is present, and our response should be praise and worship. /// Scripture: Ephesians 1:11-14 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 16th, 2020 | Running Time: 46:04"

  • In the Beloved

    In the Beloved

    10/02/2020 Duração: 37min

    In this morning’s message, Brother Danny explains what Paul means when he says that we are in Jesus. Being in Jesus means that we are redeemed, paid for, at a very high price. Being in Jesus means that we are forgiven, the wall of sin is destroyed. Finally, being in Jesus means that we are part of His plan. From the foundations of the world, God had a plan for each of his children. /// Scripture: Ephesians 1:7-10 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 9th, 2020 | Running Time: 37:22
