Transformed by Union with Christ

November 12, 2023 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Together We Are Family

Scripture: Ephesians 5:21– 6:9

Paul lived and wrote in a proudly hierarchical world where patriarchy and slavery were taken for granted. 


What happens when the new reality of union with Christ (& therefore one another) comes into contact with this social reality in Ephesus? 


Because we are all now united with Christ:


  • No one (not wives, children or slaves) can be viewed as an inferior (5.21; 6.9)
  • All of our relationships are necessarily reciprocal (5.22 & 25; 6.1 & 4; 6.7-9)
  • Our conduct toward each other should follow his example & bring him glory (5.21; 6.1,4,5,9)


Where does the radical message of our union with Christ challenge us in our lives and relationships today?
