Ephesians Session 8
The standards of God's Community 

You can listen to Sam Donoghue here as he unpacks Ephesians 4-5 for us.

Sam drew out the experience of the Ephesian Christians as they faced the reality that in the absence of an imminent return of Jesus, Paul helped them to see the need for a distinctive contrast in life and behaviour to that in the world around them 

Three specific contrasts can be seen

1. The Christian community was identifiable as a place you would want to be. It would look feel and even'smell' different.
2. This community would also be marked by its self sacrificial love
3. Paul finally contrasts the futility of the worlds behaviour with the focused joy of those following Christ.
