Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-20 | Series: Eastertide 2018
The mission of the church is simply to see that love permeate every relationship, especially the household, to show the world the same love God demonstrated in Christ. For the author of Ephesians this amounts to a kind of war. The kingdom of God is a regime of love existing in a world ruled by power. Participants in the world to come will face subtle and time honored tactics to trick them into investing their energy in those self-determined, controlling ways which are passing away. The war of the lamb is fought with the power of subversive love, undermining such powers with lives like Jesus. If we are to endure, we will require shrewd identification of the enemy, effective protection against their assault and constant communication with headquarters.
