Love Incorruptible

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In Ephesians 6:21-24, the Apostle Paul comes to the end of his deeply theology, yet wisely practical, letter to the Ephesians. He does so by touching on the main themes of his letter (grace, peace, faith, love) and calling the church – and us – to “love incorruptible”.

The Armor of God

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In Ephesians 6:10-20, Paul comes to the last major thought unit of his great letter to the church(es) at Ephesus and reminds us that Christianity is a fight. The good news is that Jesus has equipped us with all that we need in this fight. He put down his armor and took your defeat, so that you might take up his armor and take his victory.

The Gospel at Work

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Today, in Ephesians 6:5-9, we look at the work of the gospel and the gospel at work. God wants to redeem and transform all of our lives, not just a portion of them. Therefore, to be a Christian does not merely mean your Sunday schedule changes. Rather, by trusting and treasuring Jesus, you receive new forgiveness, are made part of a new people (i.e. the church), and placed in right relationship with a new, true, God. This naturally results in redeemed marriages (5:22-33), redeemed families (6:1-4) and redeemed workplaces (6:5-9). The Bible is extremely practical. God is laying out the divine ordering of the most important relationships in our life.

Parents and Children

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In Ephesians 6:1-5, we move onto the next set of household relationships: parents and children. These relationships (parents to children; children to parents) are the most dynamic, complicated and influential relationships we have. Here, Paul explains that the primary task of parenting is to cultivate a Jesus-centered home and the primary task of children is to honor their parents.

Women and Marriage

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In Ephesians 5:22-33, we have the longest statement on the relationship between husbands and wives in the New Testament. Last week we looked at God’s call to husbands to sacrificially love, protect and provide for their wives. This week, we examined the controversial and often misunderstood topic of “submission.” Wives are called by God to submit by freely, gladly, and fully respecting her husband’s leadership – just like the Church does Christ.

Men and Marriage

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In Ephesians 5:22-33, we have he longest statement on the relationship between husbands and wives in the New Testament. This week, we examine God’s call to every husband to function as the “head” of his wife and family. That “headship” is expressed as the husband takes primary responsibility for sacrificially loving, protecting and providing for his wife – just like Jesus does the church.

Walking With Jesus

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Holiness is becoming who we really are as we become increasingly like Christ. Following the pattern of transformation laid out in Eph 4:22-24 (put off + be renewed + put on), in Eph 5:1-21 Paul gives some practical insight on what it means to walk with Jesus based upon our identity in Him.

Loved Children of Light and Holy Saints

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Following the pattern of transformation laid out in Eph 4:22-24 (put off + be renewed + put on), in Eph 5:1-21 Paul moves on to additional marks of our new life in Christ by (again) appealing to who we now are in Him with three metaphors: “beloved children” (1-2), “saints” (3) and “children of light” (8).

Marks Of New Life In Christ

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Because of what Jesus has done for us, our identity and future is secure in him, so we are free to put on truth, seek reconciliation, give generously, build-up and encourage, and freely forgive. As this happens, the world gets a taste of the way life should, and one day will be. This week Pastor Adam unpacks Ephesians 4:25-32.

Being Renewed In the Spirit of Your Minds

Ephesians: The Living Church, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Without renewal we’re left with moralism and behavior modification in the form of putting off/putting on. But, with this renewal, God invites us to a relational and organic process of change, transformation and holiness. Pastor Adam Sinnett revisits Ephesians 4:17-24.
