We took a look at Ephesians 4:17-24 and discussed how the image of clothing (throwing off the old and putting on the new) can help us understand salvation. When we become Christians, God asks us to throw off our old way of life and put on a new one. Salvation is not a one stop shop, either! It is God creating us anew each and every day.
We spent some time in small groups exploring three ways Jesus described himself:
Bread of Life
Light of LifeWe talked about what water, bread and light are like and what they do for us. Then we explored how Jesus is like these things to us and how these images tell us about the new life God offers to us. Instead of our normal prayer circle to close, we passed around bread. As we each took a piece from the loaf, we named one thing we are thankful to God for as our prayer for the evening. I wonder, what are you thankful to God for in your life?
